In a first-of its-kind event, the Gallery will present a new free mobile application that showcases Middle Eastern food and culture.

The creator team will demonstrate how the interactive app connects cultures through the exchange of stories, artwork, recipes and cultural traditions.  Nooshtube will enable users to collaborate on humanitarian projects, find recipes, shop at (or “browse around”) a virtual pantry, and source Middle Eastern vendors or restaurants in the U.S. and worldwide. Artists and writers can showcase their work, and chefs can share histories and insights into their cuisines.

Through Nooshtube, “foodiepeneurs” can create a culinary network reaching from Palestine throughout the diaspora, connecting individuals from all cultural backgrounds to celebrate Middle Eastern cuisines and cultures. 

Please join us for technology in the service of yummy cultural diplomacy!

 Nakba Commemoration:
A Musical Journey Through Palestinian History 

Music and Commentary by Fuad Foty

Thursday, 15 May 2014
Please R.S.V.P.


Oud musician Fuad Foty has researched songs that made a difference in the Palestinian struggle from 1948 to the present. To commemorate Nakba Day, he will take us on a musical journey, playing the oud and singing lyrics from song writers and poets that date prior to 1948. As part of his performance, he will introduce the audience to the lyrics in Arabic and English translation, and will give an overview of the significant influence of those songs.  The chronology of his chosen songs will reflect upon Palestinian history and present day turmoil.
