The Middle East Institute's (MEI) Arts and Culture Program is hosting a panel conversation examining the critical role Middle Eastern women play in building more stable and tolerant communities through the lens of the arts.
The panel is in conjunction with programming around I AM, an exhibition of 31 Middle Eastern women contemporary artists from 12 countries, at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, with a general public opening reception on September 9. Organized by CARAVAN, an international NGO that focuses on building bridges through the arts, the exhibition highlights the role that Middle Eastern women play in their societies and the power of the arts to articulate their ambitions.
