Nowruz is one of the oldest and most important festivals in Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asia and heralds the beginning of spring. The word Nowruz means new day and return of the light.
During Nowruz, all people are equal regardless of race, religion or gender. For a brief moment, day and night, darkness and light, become equal in length and make peace.
Nowruz stands for moderation, equality and solidarity and falls on March 20, 2021.
With the Nowruz box you experience Nowruz from home.
With the sale of the Nowruz boxes, we also support The Boat Band (musicians who experiment with arrangements of music from their home country).
The Nowruz Box was created in collaboration with:
Huis van Alijn, Oxfam, Dental Mission Afghanistan, De Krook Library, Urgent.fm, Orbit vzw, Maryam Salamat (design & images) & Sohrab Jabbari (texts & general support).
