syrian brunch feast
Soufi family’s Syrian brunch feast

" If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. 
As far as you can, as  much as you can. 
Across the ocean, or simply across the river. 
Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. 
It's a plus for everybody. "
  - Anthony Bourdain

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the multi-media encapsulation of a Cultures Capsule should be worth a few million words, so perhaps the best way to experience a Cultures Capsules might be to dive into the archives of Cultures Capsules portraits in our Gallery.

microphone on an empty stage. tell your story. what do you have to say?

I was truly impressed by the level of planning, forethought, and hard work that went into this event. Its not easy to turn a living room into a comfortable performance venue with seating for 30, or serve a multi-course meal to attendees seamlessly during a live music show. There were so many details that really took the event to the next level in terms of the insight it offered into this culture. For example, we didn’t just get to taste the food, we got to look through recipes in the family’s own cookbook, and see actual family pictures displayed around the room…”
