We are proud to offer to the North Texas community our acclaimed Islamic Arts Revival Series. The mission of the Islamic Art Revival Series (IARS) is to bring awareness and exposure of Islamic Art and build cultural bridges between the Islamic world and North America. IARS builds bridges using the universal beauty of Islamic Art as a connector and translator across generations and cultures. IARS produces programs that promote education on the arts of the Islamic world and encourage vibrant cross-cultural exchange amongst all faiths and cultures. IARS represents the diversity of North Texas by showcasing all forms of art from the Muslim World, which includes many countries in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.
Our monthly luncheons provide an opportunity for the Muslim community to gain important knowledge on topics such as financial literacy, self-care, justice in Islam, domestic violence and interfaith dialogue.We also provide education programs to improve well-being in and beyond the Muslim community. We help individuals develop critical life skills through diverse offerings such as financial management, nutrition, self-care and entrepreneurship.
