HSI's first night.jpg

In December 2017, seven artists from both countries met in Dubai.  For four days, they discussed artistic disciplines, told stories, laughed, cried and laid plans to create work together.  These experiences and collaborations will be the subject of several upcoming events in the Boston area. Directed by Kathryn Howell.
