Salam from Niagara Falls Reception and Fundraiser

May 16, 4–8pm

Takht-e Tavoos
1120 College St

The artists and curator of Salam from Niagara Falls invite you to a reception and fundraiser for folks to interactively engage with the exhibition artworks and buy food and chai. 100% of proceeds will go towards the Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN), an organization by and for Indigenous youth that works across issues of sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice. The reception will include an ongoing audio installation by Zahra Rajabi and colouring stations with “Inja Koja” (Farsi for “where are we now”), a participatory project that asks its users “where do we situate ourselves within a non-linear understanding of time?” Also for sale will be pre-packaged, take-away iftar snacks including Medjool dates, Zeitoun Parvardeh, and Firnee for folks who are fasting but still interested in participating in the fundraiser and accompanying activities.
