Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture + the re
When a member of Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture came into our store and said they could use some of the music stands we saved from a movie set - it was music to our ears! Al-Bustan offers Philadelphia artistic and educational programming rooted in Arabic arts and language. They had this to say about their re shopping experience: "We are astounded with the amount of goodies that Resource Exchange has and you’ll never know what you may need unless you step in." "'Al-Bustan,' Arabic for 'The Garden,' serves youth and adults of all ethnic, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds, while supporting the pursuit and affirmation of Arab American cultural identity and playing a constructive civic role within broader American society." Check out our music stands in action in the video of Hafez Kotain and his West Philadelphia Percussion Ensemble class HERE. Thanks to Al-Bustan for sharing with us their story of re-use!
