DIWAN: A Forum for the Arts unites Arab American artists, scholars and performers representing myriad academic fields and artistic genres. Activities include presentations of new research into Arab American arts; poetry and prose readings; film screenings; and musical performances. This weekend dialogue reinforces the Arab American National Museum's commitment to providing a place for community members and artists to meet, exchange ideas and exhibit their work. It also encourages audiences to explore the boundaries of art in addressing social issues related to Arab Americans and the community at large.
