Conflict Kitchen & Afghan Cuisine

  • This is a past program

Explore Afghan culture and cuisine in this multisensory event crafted by Dawn Weleski, co-director of Conflict Kitchen, a Pittsburgh restaurant that serves food from countries with which the U.S. is in conflict. Conflict Kitchen offers a unique medium for presenting cultures and people beyond the polarizing rhetoric of politics and the narrow lens of media headlines.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
