NO PLACE LIKE HOME: EXPLORING THE SIGHTS, SOUNDS, AND TASTES OF THE MIDDLE EAST WITH ARTIST MOHAMAD HAFEZ AND GUESTS: In conjunction with the Exhibition, “Mohamad Hafez: Unsettled Nostalgia” and with the completion of the NEA supported “The Home Project” at WCSU with artist Mohamad Hafez, the Department of Art invites the public to attend this event from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Veronica Hagman Concert Hall at the Visual & Performing Arts Center.

The audience will spend the evening learning about Middle Eastern culture through history, art, film, music, storytelling, and cuisine. Hafez will be joined by other guests who also focus on the traditions of the Middle East. Together they illuminate the region’s beauty and diversity, encouraging connection and empathy, fostering dialogue and understanding, deepening an understanding and appreciation for Arabic culture.
