Poetic Voices of the Muslim World
December 15, 2016 – May 14, 2017
Poetic Voices posits poetry as a lens for cross-cultural understanding and examines its role in different aspects of life in Muslim cultures—intellectual, spiritual, social, and political. Originally developed in 2011 by City Lore and Poets House, it has traveled to 11 cities across the US. Now it returns to the Lower East Side.
