Tomorrow is International Human Rights Day. This is what the United 4 Iran movement has in storage: “a day devoted to worldwide displays of musical, visual, and performing arts highlighting the issues of human rights in Iran.” We are proud to be collaborating with United 4 Iran on this project alongside Shahrzad Dance Company, Kala Art Institute, Design Action Collective, Ballet Afsaneh amongst several others. United 4 Iran spent tireless weeks putting this together, and you can be sure that their efforts will pay off, if you take a look at the extensive list of key participants who are getting involved.
