Please join us as we continue discussions at the Pacific Northwest College of Art on art and politics in contemporary Iraq. Moderated by Tim DuRoche, Director of Programs at the World Affairs Council of Oregon, the conversation with five women in Iraqi theater will focus on the role of art in the reconfiguration of political realities and the question of gender in theaters of operation.
