A Conversation and Showcase with Artlords
About this event
Join us on Saturday, Dec. 4, 8-10 p.m. for a night celebrating Afghan street art. The event starts with a conversation with Omaid Sharifi, the co-founder of ArtLords, a grassroots art collective which has transformed protective blast walls in Kabul into sites of creative expression for nearly a decade.
Sharifi recently arrived on one of the evacuation flights to the US, and he’ll be exhibiting some of the art he brought with him. Then, he’ll paint a mural live during a DJ set by Yelda Ali, the founder of Camel Assembly, an international women-only collective of creative leaders.
The event is hosted by Nawa Arsala Lodin, chair of the Women for Afghan Women’s associate board. It will be held at Eaton House on the first floor, with a suggested donation of $25. All proceeds go to Women for Afghan Women to support their comprehensive support services to Afghans in the United States.
