Dinner Stories - New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas

Live Stream - Festival of Arts & Ideas

Convert your home into a virtual dinner theater with this evening of music, storytelling and food. Set to the “expressive, pristine vocals” (WNPR) of jazz artist Isabella Mendes, three different story tellers will focus on the theme of transformation, among them Mona Asweid, a Syrian refugee from Damascus who transformed her life after she lost and regained her hearing as a result of the war.

For a transformative discussion-dinner pairing, we suggest Sanctuary Kitchen, a program of CitySeed, where food celebrating the culinary customs, cultures, and stories of refugees and immigrants resettled in Connecticut provides nourishment. Sanctuary Kitchen will be preparing a special menu for this event. It will be posted on 5/6 and orders will need to be placed by 5/10.
