Launch of Iranian Youth Connections
Join us on AUGUST 8TH at 7PM via Zoom for an interview with the founder of NEW youth organization Misha Ghafouri, created in partnership with IASAz. Iranian Youth Connections is dedicated to creating a welcoming space for Iranian high schoolers to connect and bond with one another, learn more about Iranian culture, and gain the skills to become successful leaders in their community. Through monthly virtual meetings, they will bring in successful Iranian role models (medical professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, educators, etc) in hopes of creating networking opportunities, promote Iranian diaspora, and empowering young Iranians. During this Zoom event, she will talk more about Iranian Youth Connections, her future plans with it, and answer any questions! We encourage interested high-schoolers and parents to attend!

This open discussion (click here to watch) and conversation consist of three segments. During the first part, we will have an open discussion about the role of literature, poetry, and heritage in the Persian community and its profound importance in our culture. The first question starts with: “why should kids and adults of all cultures read the Shahnameh?” The discussion will center around the importance of understanding the role, and contributions of Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh in our modern-day. During the second part, we will listen to Dr. Sadri’s motivation, intention, and the results of his two recent works to better understand the underlying forces that make us understand our ethical and cultural heritage. Finally, we will have a 20-minute open discussion of questions and answer with the audience.
He is the author of the English translation of selected sections of Shahnameh in collaboration with Hamid Rahmanian, as well as the work with the silk road Ensemble including Yo Yo Ma and Keyhan Kalhor titled “the Heroes take their stand”. The Discussions will center around these two works:
Rahmanian and Sadri Shahnameh: The Epic of the Persian Kings
Heroes Take Their Stand
