Traditional music instruments such as the goblet drum tombak, the frame drum Daf, the long-necked lutes Tar, SETAR, and the European violin will be used. This program is supported by California Humanities’ Library Innovation Lab Grant Program. To find out more about Library Innovation Lab, visit our webpage HERE. “Library Innovation Lab: Exploring New Ways of Engaging California’s Immigrant Communities”– The Library Innovation Lab pilot project will provide training, support, and resources to a cohort of programming librarians, enabling them to design and implement new public humanities projects that will reach and engage underserved immigrant groups in their communities during the program period. Through an open call application, ten libraries were selected to receive $5,000 each to participate in our first round of the Library Innovation Lab grant program. This grants program will help build capacity within California libraries to develop creative and innovative programs that will respond to the needs and circumstances of today’s immigrants and immigrant communities and foster more inclusive communities within our state.
