    In midst of great possibilities beset with external intimidations and threats, Iranian women’s movement has been able to pave the way towards popularizing the demands of women and bring them to the main stream of public sphere. This movement has become a genuine social movement in the forefront of the struggle for progress and democracy. With Ms. Davoodi Mohajer and her intimate knowledge we will critic and analyze the positive and negative points of this movement’s internal dynamics with particular emphasize on it’s methods, tools and tactics in the recent past.

    Ms. Davoodi Mohajer is an outspoken journalist and prominent human rights defender. She is council member of the Women Journalists Association and secretary of the Women's Committee of Iranian Alumni.

    Six weeks of Iranian Art

    Ontario - Toronto Sunday - July 15, 2007     06:00 PM

    Six weeks of Iranian Art will be held at the Headbones art gallery from July 15, 2007 to August 27, 2007. It features a variety of Iranian artistic works such as well as unique live performances, live music, and theatrical shows and short documentary movies in different settings. We will present many visual works such as photography, painting and sculpture showing various aspects of Iranian culture and heritage. This show is meant to be an introduction for a series of annual art shows aimed at preservation and improvement of valuable causes like multiculturalism, and introduction of the present status of artists who come of various ethnic backgrounds that may have gone unrecognized.

    As a visible growing minority in Canada with more than 150,000 Iranian-Canadians in the country, in this show we are trying to preserve and promulgate the Iranian cultural and intellectual heritage in the Iranian as well as Canadian community. Through this endeavor we will help provide an appropriate channel for communication and dialogue for the Iranian community and promote interaction amongst artists within the context of the Canadian art society. This will aid and represent Iranian artists in this multicultural society and help their voices be heard by a larger audience. More importantly this is the first step towards familiarizing the community with the modernism movement of the Iranian-Canadian artists that may have gone un-noticed due to lack of proper exposure. This show is a unique step towards highlighting Canada as a country whose support of multiculturalism and understanding of art is well established through the support of its community as well as its government.
