Storytelling for Norouz

“Under the blue dome of the sky, one day stories were created. Stories that have moved from heart to heart, calligrapher to calligrapher, painter to painter, poet to poet, people to people, language to language, land to land, voice to voice and soul to soul”. To celebrate Norouz, join storyteller Zahra Afsah for an afternoon of storytelling and poetry. Let us take you on a narrative journey as we recount the old tales and myths of Persian literature. Free, no booking required.

In association with the Embassy of Iran.
