Monday Night Live

Our Fellows gave us a peek at their weekly Monday night dinner meetings to see what was on the menu and the agenda. We got to hear about what they’ve been up to and ask questions of our own. 

Makam Shekhina

A multireligious community of Hebrew Priestesses and Sufi Dervishes led us in an immersion into Hebrew and Arabic chant. We prayed and played together in realms of counter-oppressive devotion. Led by Taya Ma Shere, Aliya Choudhery and Sukina Pilgrim.

Art Party

We hosted an art workshop that explored what community means. It was led by art educator and art therapist Savera Iftikhar. We had a great time taking a break, reflecting, and expressing ourselves creatively.

A Center in a Table

We hosted a virtual dinner party as part of an ongoing performance-video series by LA based artist Amanda Maciel Antunes and brought together a group of people in sharing their collective memories regarding their relationships with food and one another.
