During the 2014-2015 academic year, the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University presented the Muslim Women’s Voices at Wesleyan series. This series of female Muslim performers aimed to expand awareness, knowledge and understanding of Muslim cultures through the lens of performance. These artists came to Wesleyan from around the globe – each one bringing a distinct set of personal experiences embedded in a particular place, society and cultural tradition. The program included in-depth artist residencies involving class visits, informal time with students, connections with community organizations, workshops and more.

As quoted from the Youtube description for the video here.
