Description

I AM | Paths of American Women
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 | 6:30–8:30 pm
Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC)
100 Malcom X Boulevard, Roxbury

This story-gathering workshop is for women​ and is a place of comfort, trust, excitement and sisterhood.

​​The workshop is based upon the great Sufi poem, The Conference of the Birds by Faridudin Attar. One can participate in any way they are comfortable such as by ​telling their story verbally, ​through writing or drawing​, or using movement.

This event is open to w​omen of all ages including little women​.

​The event will include a reading of the beautiful children's book, ​The Conference of the Birds by Alexis York Lumbard​.

The workshop is a chance to reflect and share one's journey, fears, and hopes and provides a supportive, uplifting environment to do so. Just as the birds uplifted and encouraged one another to cleanse their hearts and continue their epic journey, so too, will this workshop provide a place to speak and be inspired on one's own challenging journey.

​As part of the commissioned work Conference of the Birds by ANIKAYA Dance Theater to premiere in April 2018, we would like to record some of the stories to later ​weave the many voices into one, culminating dance.
