Caravan of the Arts: IRAN 2017

By Afshin Shirazian

I am excited to announce that we are going back to visit IRAN in 2017 and we are inviting several of our friends to join us! We have planned 2 special trips to Iran next year in partnership with AltruVistas (sustainable travel organization) and benefitting the OMID Foundation (charity/rehab facility for disadvantaged young women in Iran). I am thrilled to be leading these trips to introduce new people to my ancestral homeland.

Benefits of traveling with us:

  • Organized, safe travel operator that has been taking tours to Iran for over 14 years
  • All the heavy lifting and planning have been taken care of
  • Journey operator helps organize visa applications for travelers and has had much success with the visa application process
  • Proceeds from the trip benefit a local NGO, directly impacting their community in a positive way
  • See some of the most amazing historical sites, eat delicious foods, and learn first-hand why everyone is talking about this incredible destination!

More about the trips:

A year in the making, 'A Caravan of the Arts' itinerary will focus on major sites of artistic and historical significance in 4 cities including: Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Yazd. We will partake in exchanges with local artists/photographers, visits to art galleries, and photo walks. We also plan to meet with an OMID representative and/or visit their facility in Tehran to witness the amazing work that they do in the community!
