Video Preview of Our Upcoming Online Experience in Tajikistan: Join Us March 27th

In her Live Online Experience, “Rescuing Art & Culture in the 21st Century,” which will take place on Sunday, March 27, 2021, Munira Akilova will open the doorway to the culture and history of Tajikistan as embodied in the traditional textile arts. Munira is the manager and designer for Armughon Handicrafts, one of the master artisans that we have been working with for over six years now.

She'll also introduce you to the customs of Navruz, the biggest spring holiday celebration throughout Central Asia. You'll be joining her for the last day of the weeklong Navruz festival in Tajikistan.

Here’s a little preview I put together to give you a taste of what to expect. You really don’t want to miss the experience.

 

Munira will join us from her home in Khujand, Tajikistan, one of the main stops along the ancient Silk Road.  

We're keeping the experience intimate and interactive by limiting it to 15 participants. 

Join us for a virtual travel experience like no other. Leave the mask and the jet lag behind. Be prepared to laugh and learn as you travel 12 time zones away to a part of the world most people can't find on a map.

WHEN: SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 8:00-9:15 PM MOUNTAIN TIME (7:00-8:15 pm Pacific Time, 9:00-10:15 pm Central Time, 10:00-11:15 pm Eastern Time)

WHERE: Zoom (link will be sent by email to those who register)

COST: $20 

REGISTER NOW
