New podcast on Khūrākī, and fundraising launch!

By March 5, 2019Uncategorized

Hello friends,

Our upcoming project Khūrākī was featured this week on Marta on the Move, Pittsburgh’s favorite culture podcast hosted by the unsinkable Marta Napoleone! Click here to hear Marta speak with RealTime Artistic Director Rusty Thelin, young Afghan refugee Nelab, and the actor she chose to represent her in the show, Kelly Trumbull.

Live outside of Pittsburgh? Can’t come to the show, but want to support Khūrākī and the women involved? Well, now there’s a way– we launched our Ioby crowdfunding campaign today!

The end goal of Khūrākī is to make the women of Pittsburgh’s Afghan refugee population feel welcomed into the greater Pittsburgh community, through telling their stories and sharing their food.  They’re also learning about how to start a food business through workshops that are part of this project, and a large portion of the proceeds from the events will go directly back to the women in an effort to help them achieve this goal.
