Happy Nowruz/Nawriz/Navruz/Novruz/Newroz everyone!
To mark the ancient festival marking the arrival of Spring, Rustin and Kamyar reflect on the first year since Ajam’s successful Kickstarter. Thanks to our funders, Ajam can now compensate guest contributors for their writing, and with the extra finds we can finally launch new projects.
They talk about what sorts of Ajam projects are coming down the pipeline in 1398, including a new film project and the return of the mixtapes series. The conversation then moved to the topic of Nowruz and how it is celebrated and how to make it more inclusive for other communities.
