Mesopotamian Writers will Gather and Discuss Their Work at the Chaldean Cultural Center

   This conference is a way for us to open a healthy dialogue to discuss the past, present and future of the Chaldeans.”

— Weam Namou, Executive Director of the Chaldean Cultural Center

WEST BLOOMFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Chaldean Cultural Center has organized a half-day conference for writers of Mesopotamian ancestry to meet and present their work to the public. The conference will be held in-person with an online option, in the same building as the Chaldean Museum, the first and only of its kind to dedicate its exhibits to Chaldean culture, art, and traditions, past and present. The museum is a state-of- the art facility composed of five galleries that tell the distinctive and powerful story of the Chaldeans.

The name of the conference is inspired by the Aramaic phrase that means “between two rivers,” Beth Nahrain. This name designates the region around the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in Mesopotamia.
