Organizer of Ard Diyar: Virtual Happy Hour

Online Event

Ard Diyar will be hosting its very first Virtual Happy Hour during which we will explore the topic of food and drink.

About this Event

Moderated by Dr. Sarah Graff, Associate Curator of Ancient Near Eastern Art at the Met, and joined by George Batah, Chair and Co-Founder of Ard Diyar, the event begin with a short introduction to the Levantine gastronomical landscape of the past highlighting some interesting facts showcased through a selection of ancient objects in the Met’s collection.

Then, we will take a walk down memory lane and facilitate a fun and informal conversation for participants to share with the group a reminiscence of their favorite childhood food.
