Institute of Education Bar - 21 November at 7pm - £5 entry - all proceeds to International Federation of Iraqi Refugees

On 21 November, join the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees at the Institute of Education Bar for a fundraiser to raise money to support Kurdish refugees fleeing ISIS, sectarian gangs and war in the Middle East. 

We will be eating delicious Kurdish food (it's vegetarian, chicken is optional) and listening to live music, stand-up comedy and spoken-word poetry in the Institute of Education bar - function room S16. 

Our comedy set will be headlined by the excellent Nabil Abdulrashid - a comedian famous enought to have his own wikipedia entry - do not miss out!

Spoken-word acts to include Zia Ahmed of the Elephant collective.

... and me! (with some poems getting a debut performance)
Please come, bring friends, and help us provide assistance to the oppressed in Kurdistan as winter draws in.
