Ever been intrigued by exotic Dari and Arabic calligraphy? Want to understand and learn more about mental health, cultural engagement and social identity crisis? Or perhaps you’d like to learn the steps to Afghanistan’s traditional dance, the Attan?

If so, come along with your friends to AfSA’s 2016 Rushd Workshop Series. We have decided change up this year’s workshops a little aiming to provide growth, self-development and growth in our cultural understanding.
P.S – ‘Rushd’ means growth in Dari for anyone wondering.

- ALL workshops are free of charge, however, we will accept any donations towards ZamZam Water.
- Refreshments will be provided throughout each workshop.
- Keep an eye on our page as more updates will be uploaded closer to the dates.
