Established in early 2020, the Arts and Literature committee is one of the newest IWOO committees. Since then, we have been promoting Iranian art and culture in the community. The main purpose of this committee is based on IWOO’s mission of empowerment and wellness of women and their families. Another purpose is to keep the Iranian art, literature, and culture alive and vibrant for the Iranian Canadian community, especially for the younger generations.
Director: Elena Metesmir (from 2022)
