Thank You

To our gracious Kickstarter backers

It was indeed a month of magic and madness in all the best ways possible.  The events, the space and the people far exceeded all of our wildest expectations.  In more ways than one, this project represented a plethora of voices, experiences, ideas, and expressions of what Iranian culture means and in the process created new windows into culture through art.

From start to finish, it was a collective endeavor, from the objects we borrowed from cousins, to the teams of individuals who committed their time and efforts to making this such a special space, and of course, through the generosity of the community who financially kickstarted this project.

We cannot thank every individual enough for their participation and willingness and are beyond-delighted to have put together this celebration of Iranian-ness.
