To ensure that you have immediate access to unbiased, fact-based reporting, it is crucial that TML has the resources to disseminate these stories in real-time.

In our modern, digital world, we are not as far away from each other as we once were, which is why news agencies have a responsibility to put forth reliable, trustworthy journalism more than ever before.

Arab.AMP presents a monthly workshop series with Resident Artist Sholeh Asgary

Majles is a series of sound-, silence- and movement-based workshops, audience participatory scores, and collective reflections that seek to build a new governance through individual creativity, in relationship to each other. Each Majles session convenes online the third Thursday of the month, and tends to be preceded or followed by a guided offering.

Majles monthly sessions are participant-centered, free and drop-in.

September 2020 – May 2021
