On Thursday, May 25 at 4pm area educators are invited to a teachers’ workshop where Egyptian musician, dancer and folklorist Karim Nagi will introduce the diversity of Arab culture through music, dance, language and costume at the K.A. Brett School in Tamworth. Arts Council of Tamworth community workshops are free and open to the public. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Drop-ins are also welcome.
Karim will spend the weekdays at the K.A. Brett School working with all K-8 students. Through the universal language of music and dance, Karim will demystify and humanize Arab culture in an engaging, fun, participatory program for young people called Arabiqa. The community is invited to celebrate Karim’s week with the students at a public assembly at the KA Brett School on Friday May 26 at 2pm.
