Society for the Performing Arts is in the vanguard of a groundbreaking international program aimed at establishing greater understanding between American and Muslim societies. Caravanserai: A place where cultures meet is based in the concept of the historical caravanserai - a place where travelers exchanged stories, music, and culture after a long day’s journey across the desert.
SPA will serve as a modern-day caravanserai by presenting dynamic performing artists and filmmakers from Malaysia.
To promote cross-cultural conversation and arts learning, SPA’s Caravanserai will include workshops for youth and adults, school demonstrations, community presentations, jam sessions, discussions and public performances. Caravanserai: A place where cultures meet is produced by Arts Midwest on behalf of the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations with leadership support from the Building Bridges Program of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. Caravanserai’s film and media programming is coordinated on behalf of the program by South Arts.
