Join NEXTGen Detroit at Signal Return in Eastern Market as we welcome artist, typeface designer and inventor of Aravrit, Liron Lavi Turkenich all the way from Israel!
First and foremost, what is Aravrit? Aravrit is a hybrid set of letters that is composed of Arabic on the top and Hebrew on the bottom. Liron will share her inspiration for creating this new writing system, the challenges she faced, reactions from the public and how this font has the potential to change Israeli culture. Then we will create our own postcards featuring a word of our choice in Aravrit that we can send to loved ones or hang up at home.
Cost: $15 per person.
A light Israeli brunch and all postcard making materials are included in the cost. Dietary laws observed.
