[IN PERSON] DUGRI, Let's Talk Straight

Session schedule
Age range
Pay what you wish: Minimum ticket price $10.00

In May 2021, a blunt Jew/Arab rap-battle music video about history, war, family, trauma, and the Israeli-Palestinian reality went viral, serving as a mirror to society and evoking civil discourse on hatred, discrimination, and co-existence. From this phenomenon DUGRI was born, a social venture bringing Jews and Arabs together by creatively echoing a new, moderate Israeli-Palestinian narrative.
Join Israeli educator/creator Uriya Rosenman and Palestinian rapper Sameh SAZ Zakout to hear their mutual story and analysis of Jewish-Arab relations, a live performance of DUGRI’s songs, and engage in an open and honest conversation with all the hard-hitting questions. This is a unique opportunity to engage with deep questions about the current reality in a new and fun way that is accessible to a broad audience.
