Climate Migrations Exhibit, Houston Climate Justice Museum at POST Houston

Join Mitchell Center Visiting Artist Asad Ali Jafri and SpaceShift Collective for a listening and storytelling event rooted in radical joy and international solidarity at the Houston Climate Justice Museum in collaboration with Houston artists Mashal Awais, Zain Awais, Christina Novakov-Ritchey, and Matt Manalo. The event brings artists, activists, and community organizers in the values and practices of the Shamiana, a South Asian canopy used for celebrations, rituals, and gathering. The event marks the launch of the Sonic Study: Sounds of Palestinian Resistance, a sound installation and listening space showcasing the work of Mo'min Swaitat and the Learning Palestine Group at POST Houston and the Solar Studios at Rice University, a project stewarded by Christina Novakov-Ritchey, and Matt Manalo.
