Introducing: the Basra-Boston Project
In Collaboration with the Fort Point Theater, the CAC is pleased to co-sponsor:
The Basra-Boston Project
Exploring Common & Uncommon Experiences Through Art & Ideas
The Basra-Boston Project makes connections among scholars, artists, and students at the University of Basra in Iraq and their counterparts in the United States (principally in the Boston area). The goal is to promote dialogue between individuals in countries separated by geography and war, by sharing research and creative ideas. Through exhibitions, presentations and performance, the project brings the results of this exchange to wider audiences.
Initially, the project is designed as a pilot, to explore different teaching techniques. It is now focused on one-on-one collaboration, both artistic and scholarly.
