Event description

Description


Join MALA and Ideas Beyond Borders for a salon-style evening of readings, storytelling, and networking. Bayt Al Hikma 2.0 is the initiative of Ideas Beyond Borders, which embraces the rekindling of the Golden Age of Islam that produced the “House of Wisdom” when science, critical thinking, and pluralism, and similar enlightenment ideas were welcomed and embraced.

Attendees are encouraged to participate in a respectful dialogue about empowerment, education, and connection. Selected readings and stories will be provided for an intimate discussion that will explore a broad range of topics, including identity; human rights; freedom of speech; and assimilation.

* Snacks and refreshments will be provided
