You are cordially invited to a small and informal gathering in celebration of the great Urdu poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz. The inspiration for our gathering is the newly hung portrait of Faiz at the Asian Centre, UBC, in the main hall of the building. The painting was completed by our local artist Sheetal Anmol, and gifted to the University of British Columbia by The Committee of Progressive Pakistani Canadians (CPPC). We will gather to consider the contribution of Faiz, and the importance of his portrait in the central location on UBC campus for the study of South Asian arts and letters.
