Join Friends, Peace, and Sanctuary for a day filled with culinary + art workshops connected to the two-year project at The Free Library of Philadelphia. Experience the Peace exhibition with guided tours. This is one of three sites that make up the full exhibition that showcases newly created and collaborative artworks by resettled Syrians and Iraqis & renowned book artists that interweave historic and contemporary stories of refuge. The open house and reception is free all day, except the cooking workshop from 1-3 at the Culinary Literacy Center.

  • 3pm-4pm: Reception catered by Chef Asmaa Diab. She will be cooking in the Culinary Literacy Center throughout the day, if you want a sneak peak behind the scenes of her cooking!

رافق الأصدقاء، السلام، و الملاذ الآمن في يوم ملئ بحلقة دروس فنون الطبخ + الفن بعلاقة مع مشروع السنتين في مكتبة فيلاديلفيا الحرّة.

أختبر معرض السلام مع جولات مصحوبة مع المخرجة الفنية، سوزان فريمان. هذا واحد من المراكز الثلاثة التي تكون المعرض الفنّي الكلّي الذي يعرض أعمال فنيّة جديدة و متنوعة التعاون لفنانين سوريين و عراقيين موَطنيين بالخارج و فنانين كتب مشاهير لتحيك قصص تاريخية و حديثة للهجرة.

أقضي اليوم في فرع باركواي المركزي إمّا في “مركز تعليم الطهي” أو في “مركز هايم للعلاقات الثقافية و الحضارية”.
