Everyone’s creation story offers a glimpse of who people are and who they come from, and who they can be. Drawing from our theme, From Among the Stars, this workshop invites you to co-create a futurity as we find place in the sky. All the Stars are Closer encourages us to think more intimately about what skies mean to us, what they hold for us, and what they reveal to us. Through a participatory art making process, we hope this space serves as a reminder of our own light and how bright it is. In this spirit, we will also be honoring Norouz(نوروز), the solar new year. Celebrated on the spring equinox by peoples across Southwest and Central Asia, Norouz honors renewal, a new beginning, a, chance to put the past behind you.

As part of the celebration, families put together a tabletop arrangement, known as the “Haft-Sin” or the “7 S’s” and every object symbolizes a component of renewal and self-reflection into the new year. The seven items include: “sabzeh” / wheat sprouts, “samanu” / sweet pudding, “senjed” / dried jojoba fruit, “seer” / garlic, “seeb” / apple, “somaq” / sumac, “serkeh” / vinegar. Along with the seven items others such as coins, hyacinth flowers, a mirror, candles, goldfish, and painted eggs are also included on the table. All of these items represent renewal, rebirth, and a new start that is full of sweetness, health, wealth, and happiness. Families come together every year to put the haft-sin together and this year as part of the WoCR, we will be coming together as a community to collectively make the “haft-sin,” paint eggs together and talk about the meaning and the celebration of Norouz.
