Before We Were Banned

Before We Were Banned is a series of events subverting the Muslim Ban 1.0 by cultivating a platform for creatives of the seven countries on the list to draw their own picture and write their own narrative. Curated by the Brooklyn-based Iranian duo, Before We Were Banned first and foremost celebrates the arts and culture of these communities and in due course aims to repudiate the antagonistic image portrayed of these nations.
