Award-winning Iraqi-American artist Luma Jasim presented a live painting and storytelling performance this year accompanied by original music from Ryan Garrett. Luma shared powerful moments from her childhood growing up amid war.
Luma has been working with local youth to teach stop-motion animations, which were displayed during her May 4th performance at the Linen Building. More student workshops will take place this month with our summer program.
Our deepest gratitude to Luma and Ryan and to Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for grant support. Photos by Gracieux Baraka. Video by Özgür Seyben with editing by Tandem Lens.
