Persian Sunrise, American Sunset Storytelling Workshop

NuRoots, The Nazarian Initiative, and The Braid welcome the Persian community for this personal story writing workshop.
Location: Zoom
Date/Time: Thursday 2/4 | 6:00 pm

Are you Persian/Iranian? We want to invite you to bring your stories to life through a unique writing workshop offered by NuRoots, the Nazarian Initiative, and the Braid (formerly Jewish Women’s Theatre).
Storytelling is a deep tradition within Iranian culture, and you have a story to tell whether you realize it or not. This workshop will help you discover it! Learning to cook with your maman bozorg (grandmother), choosing a nontraditional career or life path, a beautiful holiday memory, an internal identity struggle—these are all experiences to explore, and we hope you’ll join other Iranians in L.A. to share your path and keep these stories alive.


Thursday, February 4 at 6:00 pm
Zoom link provided upon RSVP


In this hands on experience, you will learn how to craft an engaging story and have the opportunity to submit your finished piece for The Braid’s upcoming Salon show Persian Sunrise, American Sunset featuring stories from the Persian community.


Can’t make the workshop but want to submit to the show? Shoot us an email and we’ll tell you how at DMaher@JewishLA.org.
