As you may see from the absence of posts for the last several months, Pars Arts is on indefinite hiatus. The seeming cringe-fest Shahs of Sunset may bring me back, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in and supported Pars Arts since our start in 2006 – there weren’t many people talking online about the young Iranian diaspora back then, and luckily there are tons of places to get inspired now.
So if you’re jonesing for Iran-related art/culture/diaspora stuff, may I recommend:
- The Pars Arts archives – every post from the last 5 years of the site’s existence (look at the top right of this site, and you can browse by category)
- Yadashts – a super-cool and smart tumblr that’s all up on diaspora life and culture
- Persianesque – an online magazine that features a lot of interviews with interesting Iranians
Please feel free to add other interesting sites in the comment section below.
Keep your nose clean, Internet! See you whenever!
