Zora says "Love makes your soul crawl out from it's hiding place." This Crawl Out Thursday, were crawling out for the love of home. Zora’s anthropological work engages the cultural traditions of African peoples throughout the Diaspora as they made home in the lands to which they were displaced. Inspired by the light and leadership of Zora's visionary work, this Crawl Out Thursday is hosted by YallaPunk, a Philadelphia based cultural arts organization that is redefining the narrative for Southwest Asian North African individuals through the arts. Come experience a series of performance works engaging the topics of diaspora, home, and identity. Featuring the poetic prowess of Andrea Abi-Karam, Arab-American genderqueer punk poet-performer, and Becca Khalil, Egyptian American poet, actor and performance artist, this evening will also incorporate a collaborative performance from Roger Mgrdichian and Julius Masri. Come through, experience great performance, meet friends old and new at the Penn Museum with YallaPunk!

Admission: $15; cash bar available.
