This festival of innovative multimedia performances developed out of year-long dialogue and encounters between Georgetown students and youth from Egypt, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq, Palestine, and Pakistan. Using intimate live performances as well as web-based technology and social media platforms, the festival will, under the direction of faculty and the projects’ core artists, celebrate the perspectives, hopes, and stories of hundreds of young people from around the world.

This event is the third of four anchoring events in The Lab’s MYRIAD VOICES: A Cross Cultural Performance Festival. This two-year Festival is a series of performances from leading artists around the world that will be accompanied by convenings, public forums, interdisciplinary courses, and the creation of new work.
