Our Events will continue as announced earlier:

1) Monday Talk: 27 November بعدنا طيبين
We lost Jean Chamoun a few months back. In 1976, and with Ziad Rahbani, he
broadcast on Radio Liban a large number of masterpieces called “Baadna
Taybeen”. The two were 19 years old then. The clips will be introduced by
Jihad Saade. They consist of visionary views by the two youngsters on the
situation in Lebanon. Many of them would be topical today. Of course, they
are also extremely funny. (Arabic).

2) Literary Club: Wednesday 29 November
The poet, Antoine Boulad, will be moderating a creative writing workshop that
focuses on POETRY: Pandora’s Poetry and Fun Writing. The languages you will
work with can be Arabic, French or English. Join us for a creative experience. It
was in 2006 that with other friends, we started “Work in Progress”, a literary
club based on Antoine’s suggestion: to foster creativity in writing.

4) Monday Talk: 11 December
Noura Alameddin: The Geishas: a Japanese Enigma Explained (English)
Whenever Japan is mentioned, the reaction is always Sushi, electronics and Geisha, the last said with a smirk or expression of distaste. Through my experience with Japanese culture Noura found that there is more to the Geisha than is generally known. In Western perception, geishas are nothing more than exotically dressed prostitutes. But are they really? What is the Flower and Willow world like and how does it function? What role, if any, do the Geisha girls play in Japanese society?
In her talk Noura hopes to give us a look into this world, its history, life style and rituals and try to debunk some of the misconceptions held by foreigners about this misunderstood and maligned section of Japanese Society.
