Join “Friends, Peace, and Sanctuary” for a day filled with culinary + art workshops connected to the two-year project at The Free Library of Philadelphia. Experience the “Peace” exhibition, one third of the full exhibition showcasing newly created and collaborative artworks by resettled Syrians and Iraqis & renowned book artists that interweave historic and contemporary stories of refuge.

Spend the day at the beautiful Parkway Central branch whether that’s in the Culinary Literacy Center or the newly renovated Heim Center for Cultural and Civic Engagement.
