Waging Peace Now Available
It’s International Peace Day and to commemorate it, we’ve produced an online book, Waging Peace.
The poems, narrative and artwork were contributed by you, our members!
Take a look at Waging Peace online
or you can go to
and purchase a hard copy of the book.
As noted in the introduction of Waging Peace, contributors are amateur and professional, young and older, representing multiple religions, ethnicities and geographic origins. This is our first venture in producing a collective work and we are thrilled with the response we have received, both from our contributors and from our members.
Two October Events You Don’t Want To Miss
October is a big month for Voices. If you are in the Seattle area come and join us for two events:
Seda: Voices of Iran workshop for teachers and students will be held on October 3.
Presenters for the day-long workshop include: political scientist, Nader Nazemi, human rights lawyer Arzoo Osanloo, film producer and photographer, Abdi Sami and poet Sholeh Wolpe.
Wolpe will be reading her own works and the works of the acclaimed Persian poet Forugh Farrokhzad. A special musical presentation will be made by the Kamand Ensemble. Register for the workshop on our website
Your workshop ticket can be used as entry into this next event: Rick Steves: Travel as a Political Act, on October 10.
Just one week later, this event will be at Town Hall with former cirque du soleil lead vocalist, Gina Sala. Details of the evening are on our website.
Tickets for the evening can be purchased there as well. Please plan on joining us for one or both events.
Buy your tickets for the Rick Steves event.
New: Iranian Curriculum
We’re very excited about our latest curriculum: Seda: Voices of Iran.
It’s an amazing introduction to the history, political turmoil and the culture of Iran. Many years ago George Orwell suggested that the way to enter a new culture is to keep our eyes and ears open and our mouth closed.
Some may view his observation as naive, but if we delve a little deeper we find that the Iran of today, while still holding tight to its core values, is not the Iran we left behind in the 1979 Islamic Revolution. We have a long road to travel as we begin to learn about Iran again. The material in our Iranian curriculum provides a pathway to new insights and offers a new framework from which we can ask questions and seek answers.
