The Concert of Colors Forum on Community, Culture & Race, one of the Arab American National Museum’s signature annual events, is a dynamic gathering of artists, activists and advocates who use art and dialogue as a tool for advocacy and community building. This year’s program will be presented virtually online. Breaking bread together is a tradition during this signature event; we hope you’ll tune in during dinner!

The Forum’s theme this year, What is Democracy? | The artists respond., speaks directly to this year’s theme of the festival, Art & Democracy.
