Restoring Culture to Combat Genocide: Rohingya Stories of Hope, A conversation with Yasmin Ullah and Max Frieder
April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Rohingya of Burma have been called the most persecuted community on the globe. For decades, the Burmese military has sustained a genocidal campaign aimed at erasing the Rohingya through any means possible, including the stripping of rights – education, worship, livelihoods, citizenship and more. In the face of this relentless campaign, the Rohingya within Burma and throughout the world have persevered. Join us for a discussion with Rohingya activist Yasmin Ullah and Artolution executive director Max Frieder about the work that Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are doing to restore culture through creative projects and finding stories of hope despite the obstacles and struggles the community faces.
