In December of 2019 we partnered with the Honolulu Museum of Art's Doris Duke Theater to offer a free workshop on "Inverse Surveillance" with filmmaker and journalist Assia Boundaoui. Boundaoui's film, the "Feeling of Being Watched" charts journalist Assia Boundaoui’s investigation into a secret FBI counterterrorism probe of her Muslim-American neighborhood in Chicago—code-named “Operation Vulgar Betrayal”—and its enduring impact on her community. The film has recently won the Livingston Award from journalism and is now available streaming online here. There is also a community screening healing guide that you can find here.
Check out a powerful piece choreographed and directed by T. Ayo Alston, Executive Artistic Director of Ayodele Drum and Dance, former Shangri La artists in residence. In the video, they join a number of other Chicago-based Black dance companies to honor and celebrate Black lives through dance. You can also take virtual classes with them weekly. Find out more about their schedule here.

American Muslim Futures is an online exhibition of work that pairs the creativity of visual and performing artists with the conviction of civil rights advocates to realize new civic futures where all Americans live free from hate and discrimination.
