Sponsored by ELTHAM bookshop & Wild Dingo Press
SHOKOOFEH AZAR,  SHOLEH WOLPÉ, DR MAMMAD AIDAN,

Is there an irreconcilable clash of world views between Iranian and Western cultures?
Or is it manufactured by politicians, philosophers and clerics?
How do writers in exile, in the diaspora, navigate these tensions?
Are they conflicted as artists, and what is the unique contribution they make to the cultural, political and philosophical conversations across the chasm (if there is one!)

ENTRY $70 single ticket | $120 couples
Includes 1 $30.00 gift voucher for ELTHAMbookshop, Persian banquet and a fascinating discussion with Iranian intellectuals
