Description:

As part of the Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here DC 2016 Project, Artist-activists Amal Al-Jubouri and Andy Shallal reflect on their relationship to Iraq, their art and poetry, and the aftermath of the 2003 US invasion on Iraq. They will speak about Al-Mutanabbi Street, the booksellers’ street in Baghdad, and the history and contemporary life of art, poetry, and intellectual exchange in Iraq.

Andy Shallal is an Iraqi-American artist, activist and entrepreneur. He is the founder of Busboys and Poets, a community where racial and cultural connections are consciously uplifted and a space for art, culture and politics to intentionally collide to inspire social change and begin to transform communities and the world. Busboys and Poets is a sponsor of Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here DC 2016.
