Episode 60 in English: Andrea Assaf of Art2Action!

It was such an amazing surprise, while we were in Tampa, to learn from our friend Nadia about the Arab Festival that happened to be going on that weekend.  The organization Art2Action was one of the cosponsors of this amazing event.  Alia attended the festival and knew that contacting Andrea Assaf was a must after that!  We ended up recording an excellent episode not long after the festival, and it was so wonderful getting to talk to Andrea.  We talked about the organization Art2Action https://art2action.org which is the org that Andrea is the founding Artistic and Executive Director of.  We talked about many things, and one of the main topics was how art can bring people together, including people who normally would not find themselves in the same spaces.  We discussed how necessary it is for us all to strive to look outside of our bubbles and be willing to have conversations with people who have differing mindsets from us.  Thank you so much to Andrea for joining our podcast!
