Join us at 4thSpace for an event in collaboration with the International Support for Uyghurs that brings together scholars, activists, and artists to explore the Uyghur crisis and culture from multiple perspectives, providing a platform for dialogue and awareness. 

We invite you to be a part of this important conversation and engage in a meaningful dialogue, gain a deeper understanding of the Uyghur crisis, and explore ways to contribute to the global response.

The event will include a panel discussion looking at Uyghur culture and the global response to the current crisis. Following this will be a short presentation on Uyghur dance and music with Dr. Adalyat Issiyeva, Part-Time Faculty, Liberal Arts College, Concordia University.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
