Consult any long-term American statistical compilation (say, on the economy or on the crime rate) and one might be forgiven for concluding that the trend lines look quite positive for Americans’ sense of security and prosperity.
The dinner itself celebrates the artists origins, with a three-course Syrian meal meticulously prepared by chefs who themselves are refugees from the current crisis in Syria. Furthermore, during your dining experience, there will be traditional Syrian music played by the Daaf Music Collective who will be performing on stage. We aim to immerse you in Syrian culture and cuisine as well display the boundless hospitality that can be found in each and every Syrian home.
However, this closing night will provide you with more than just a dining experience with a musical accompaniment! In conjunction with Roose Tulen, we will offer you an interactive experience that will enable you to talk to and understand complex issues via perspectives of Syrian volunteers, artists and activists working in the field of refugee resettlement. Fanack hopes to foster the growing sense of community inclusive of the Syrian experience of war, understood through the beautiful aspects of food, art, and storytelling.
