Do you think its time to notice what’s happening in Darfur, Sudan?

On Thursday, April 27th, from 6-10pm the Save Darfur Coalition: UW and the Darfur Action Club at Seattle University are hosting an arts festival in the HUB East Ballroom to raise awareness about the ongoing genocide occurring in the Darfur region of Sudan. The event is called: DARFEST: Because genocide is everyone's concern.

The evening will include music, dance and spoken word performances, and visual arts, conveying the facts and impacts of the situation in Darfur through art and educational displays. Student performers and visual artists will share recent works in a festive and productive environment. There will also be opportunities to educate yourself about the many dimensions of the conflict with materials from different organizations.

The price of admission is $5 for children under twelve, students, and seniors aged 65+. The price of admission for community members is $7. Tickets may be purchased with cash or Husky Card on the evening of the event. All profits from DARFEST will benefit the internationally respected organization, Doctors Without Borders, one of the few aid organizations on the ground in Darfur. I hope you all can make it out to support us in our endeavors to end the genocide in Sudan.
