Bridging Cultures

Ibrahim Hamide

Bridging Cultures is a celebration of Muslim culture that includes exhibits, film screenings and conversations throughout the month of October. The Cottage Grove Public Library will be hosting an ongoing display for the entire month, starting Sunday, Oct. 1, featuring its collection of books, films, music and art that’s focused on all things Muslim culture. This first week also includes a screening of the short film What It’s Like To Be Muslim in Oregon with conversations with guest speakers Ibrahim Hamide, the owner of Café Soriah, and Hanan Elsherif, the UO Arabic Studies coordinator. The film screening is from 6-8 pm at the Cottage Grove Public Library (700 Gibbs Avenue, Cottage Grove) on Monday, Oct. 2. Check out the full list of events at cottagegrove.org/library. This event, and all other Bridging Cultures events, is FREE. — Meerah Powell
