Weaving the Common Thread:Perspectives from Persian Artists
Persian Arts Festival (PAF) is an arts and cultural organization whose mission is to present events that bring the magnificence and diversity of Persian culture to the community at large. Our goal is to support and showcase emerging and established artists, the voices and visionaries of today, while at the same time honoring the rich literary and artistic tradition from which contemporary Persian culture draws so much of its energy. To accomplish this goal, PAF produces a series of events that incorporate, but are not limited to, fine art, music, film, comedy, educational workshops, panel discussions and family-focused activities celebrating Persian traditions and holidays, including one of the most defining aspects of the culture, cuisine.
We are seeking emerging and established fine artists to share their voice and perspective as a Persian artist. Please see more information and submission guidelines below.
Deadline APRIL 2, 2007
Theme Description: Being of Persian descent and living in the United States inevitably can have tremendous impact on the evolution of ones internal lens, and inevitably, ones global perspective. A unique ability is harvested, like many Americans of immigrant heritage, to use the geographical distance from their country (s) of origin to reflect on the effect of Middle Eastern descent to one’s inner character and/or the international community. In essence, we are asking for artists to submit work that offers insight to experiences that have shaped their views and how Persian lineage has colored their lives.
