Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture
February 26, 2010

I've participated in Al-Bustan's first Arabic Music Ensemble performance and had a great time! Not only was I exposed to some really great artists, I have learned to appreciate the great old songs that my parents used to listen to and still do. I enjoyed our practices and the involvement Al-Bustan has with other Arab groups in Philadelphia and wish them the best of luck with their Simon Shaheen-led Music Ensemble this semester!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the great attendance we had at the Arab Music Ensemble! Bodek Lounge was PACKED.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to subsidize more of the events .. ie tuition for programs (if possible)

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how they try to engage the local community with Arabic culture/heritage.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, helpful, interactive, and passionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world.. they can break down more stereotypes about arabs and what we stand for

Ways to make it better...

the volunteers got a dvd of their performance ;)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

perhaps funding

One thing I'd also say is that...

great work with local communities!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
