At the end of March 2017, the first “official” delegation from the Boulder-Nablus Sister City Project will visit its sister of Nablus, Palestine. The delegation will bring yoga and dance to Nablus’ youth and that of surrounding refugee camps. Delegates will represent Boulder in a positive light to the citizens of Nablus. The delegation will serve as a launching point for partnerships leading to cultural and educational exchange. In addition to dancers and yoga instructors, the delegation includes teachers, artists, medical professionals, and other dedicated volunteers.

To support this effort (and to showcase Middle-eastern culture that we want the community of Boulder to fall in love with, as we have), we have created the Boulder2Nablus Delegation Illumination Celebration, a night of Middle-eastern arts & culture.

Join us, in body or (if not possible) in spirit for this magical evening! If you are able to attend, the event includes Middle-eastern music, food, dance, short films, storytelling, a silent auction, food & beverages, and much more.
