ASA and SJP are coming together to present: “If Rumi meets Mahmoud Darwish”. An event that connects the two cultures together and shows the similarities the two share; the main being poetry. Which is a big part of both Palestinian and Afghan cultures. So join us for a night of poetry: an open mic, poetry
battles, and a game of jeopardy! AND of course snacks!!!!
What’s a poetry battle?
We will imitate poetry battles that are done in Afghanistan where one person starts a poem and the other completes it. To participate in the battle, sign up on the google sheet and we will assign you a partner the day of the event. We will give you and the person you're battling a theme to write about to prepare before the event! Show us your creativity by signing up!!
We will play cultural jeopardy where participants will answer questions about both cultures.
