  • Wasat 5623 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA, 98118 United States (map)

World renowned poet and screenwriter Amir Sulaiman will be back at #WasatWednesday this week (7pm @ Hillman City Collaboratory) to guide us in a conversation on how embodying the prophetic qualities allows us to live a life of meaning and purpose. Join us for an evening of transmission, transformation and transcendence.

#AmirSulaiman is a poet, recording artist, Harvard Fellow, actor, screen writer and producer born in Rochester, New York. His poems cross subjects of love, tragedy as well as what it means to reconcile humanity with the unprecedented trials of modernity. He has performed his works across the US as well as many other countries including England, Belgium, Senegal, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Australia, Iran and the Netherlands, and continues to tour world-wide. His recently published book of poetry, Love, Gnosis & Other Suicide Attempts met with critical acclaim, in addition to his latest album "The Opening," the third in a unique trilogy project, following "The Meccan Openings" (2011) and "The Medinan Openings" (2012). Amir was first introduced to a National audience in 2005 when he was featured for two seasons on Russell Simmons' groundbreaking series Def Poetry Jam on HBO.
