Please come by Molly Pitchers at 1641 2nd Avenue, this Wednesday from 6:00-9:00p in an effort to raise awareness and resources for Afghan women and children. Speaking Up is the latest in the Voices of Afghanistan series from the organization Artfully Unforgotten. The evening will include Afghan inspired artwork, spoken word performances as well as the Voices of Afghanistan book launch.
To find out more about the series and Artfully Unforgotten's other work, please visit artfullyunforgotten.com, where you can also view the Voices of Afghanistan's video short preview and/or preorder your copy of the book.
Both the book and the film material were captured by Artfully Unforgotten's Founder/Executive Director, Heather Metcalfe during her three week trip to Afghanistan last June. The images highlight the struggles and accomplishments, strength and beauty of Afghanistan and in particular the Afghan women Heather meet with and got to know.
We hope to see you on April 28th!
