Farhang Generations

Launched in 2012, the Farhang Generations Council is dedicated to the continued success, education and passion of young Iranian-Americans and the community at large.  We strive to further Farhang Foundation’s mission by creating a platform for Iranian art and culture to flourish upon for our forthcoming generations.

”The Farhang Generations Council will provide a forum to celebrate and share our culture with future generations and the community at large. Our goal is to educate and promote the richness of our art, music, cuisine and more while having fun!” – Amir Hemmat , Board of Trustees & Chair of Farhang Generations Council
