Join O, Miami and Refugee Assistance Alliance on Friday, April 20th, for a very special poetic edition of A Taste of Syria (formerly Syrian Supper Club) where we’ll enjoy a feast prepared by Syrian refugees that have been resettled in South Florida, and poetry readings by the children of these families. The proceeds from ticket sales will go to the women chefs from the refugee families preparing the meal and to Refugee Assistance Alliance for their programming.
Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war in 2011, over 5 million refugees have fled violence in Syria, and over 6 million Syrians have been internally displaced. As conditions deteriorate and military campaigns escalate, even more refugees will be forced to flee their homes and home country. Refugee Assistance Alliance hosts these supper club events to foster a sense of community and inclusion for refugee families in South Florida, to create a welcoming cultural exchange with local Miamians, and to bolster their tutoring and support programs for the families.
Refugee Assistance Alliance and their network of tutors and volunteers provide a number of support services to these refugees and their children. By employing women from different Syrian refugee families, these supper club events provide a sense of agency and empowerment to each of the chefs to be able to contribute to community engagements, and provide an additional means to make money for their families. These events also serve as an opportunity to raise awareness throughout South Florida about the needs of refugees that have been resettled in their area in a setting that is approachable and fun, breaking down barriers and preconceptions by breaking bread together.

Finally, a poetry event dedicated to Nicolas Cage. Come see @frontyardtheatrecollective take their own Faces/Off and don the many masks of The Cage. Performances directed by @chachgram
Wednesday 6pm in the lobby at @olympiatheater
Free & no RSVP required.

“Optimus Rhyme” is the world’s first fully robotic performance poet. Created by @mariothemaker, Optimus reads poems in both human and robotic voices and never goes over his allotted time. He made his debut last at #omiami at @thebetsyhotel and brought the house down. Human poets, beware.
