Celebrate the culture of the Faylee Kurds

Events date: Tuesday 30 November 2010

**Doors open at 6pm** **Admission free**

**Food and refreshments**

At St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace,

78 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AG

Join us to celebrate the culture of the Faylee, their costume, music, poetry and art.

The evening will include a presentation by Dr Majeed Jafar, and a panel discussion with Dr Munira Omid and Bettool Molkshabi.

The Faylee are Shia Kurds, whereas most Kurds are Sunni Muslims. There are estimated to be some one million Faylee living in their homeland in North Eastern Iraq and Western Iran, the land of Elam. They have suffered many years of persecution and expulsions from Iraq which has threatened their culture.

We will send you more details nearer the date - and we much look forward to seeing you at St Ethelburga's on the evening of 30 November.

The Trustees of Gulan: Sarah Panizzo, Carla Garnelas, David Carrington
