Musical Ambassadors of Peace and License to Freedom partner with San Diego State University Dance Department in project called “Dance of Home”
This was an outcome of a two-month long weekly dance and movement workshop she provided for Middle Eastern refugee women and children in El Cajon in partnership with Dilkhwaz Ahmed, Executive Director of License to Freedom, and Ari Honarvar, a member of Musical Ambassadors for Peace.
Performers: Members of the refugee communities, License to Freedom, Musical Ambassador of Peace, and SDSU faculty and staffs, including Dilkhwaz Ahmed, Ari Honarvar, Nital Meshkoor, Najlaa Shakir, Christine Sahin, Elizabeth Allison, and Chuyun Oh.
San Diego is one of the largest refugee-receiving cities in the U.S. Collaborated with and presented by members of refugee women and children in El Cajon, this performance shares their stories with dance and music.
Arts are a great tool to build a supportive community regardless of cultural barriers and differences. We hope that this performance will invite everyone to feel and create their own “home” with a sense of respect, love, and empathy.
Developed in partnership with License to Freedom and Musical Ambassadors of Peace thanks to generous support from PSFA “Projects for Public Good” Grant.
