Learning About our Neighbors – A Focus on Afghan Culture

Aug 23 2022

Event Details

Where: Vancouver
Date: August 23, 2022
When: 5:00 PM

Since the fall of Kabul in August 2021, Canada has welcomed over 15,000 vulnerable Afghans, with over 1,500 settling in BC alone.

The Afghan community has therefore become an essential part of Canadian society. The upcoming Learning About our Neighbors –A Focus on Afghan Culture aims to explore the richness of Afghan culture, food and music.

At the event, a new educational documentary titled “Learning About Our Neighbours – Afghan Culture” will be screened, along with the release of the accompanying study guide. Then a panel of newcomers from Afghanistan will reflect on the importance of Afghan culture and their experiences of leaving their homes in Afghanistan and settling in Canada. Following the panel discussion, we will hold a Q&A session with the panelists.
