afikra is a monthly salon-style evening in someone's home where two members of the community present about cultural and historical topics they are curious about. The purpose of each evening is to bring together a community of like-minded individuals and have fruitful conversations about things we don't know much about. Previous topics have included 1960s Egyptian film, Ottoman legal traditions, Omani architecture, the history of the hair salon industry in Casablanca, the great authors of post-modern Sudan, and many more.
Will I have to present this time? No, don't worry! You can sign up to present at afikra one of the following months.
What do I have to bring? Bring a beverage and/or snacks to share.
Can I invite friends? Absolutely. If you want to invite anyone, please have them RSVP so we can keep track of who is coming.
Can non-Arabs come? Of course! Everyone is welcome!!
What topics will people present on? Topics of presentations will vary widely. Some will be high brow, some low brow, some..erm..medium brow. They are on based on a curiosity that the presenter had related to Arab history and culture. The presentations are about showcasing and sharing what they found after spending some time looking into their curiosity.
