Farhang Foundation, California

Promoting study and research of Iranian art, culture and history

farhang.org: At Farhang Foundation, our mission is to celebrate and to promote the study and research of Iranian art, culture and history for the benefit of the community at large. Farhang was founded in 2008, by a group of philanthropists in Southern California. The foundation works in three ways to achieve its goals: 1. By funding university programs, publications and academic conferences. 2. By sponsoring art and cultural events such as Nowruz and Mehregan, art shows, musical performances, plays, dances, films, and poetry readings. 3. By planning and funding exhibitions with local cultural and / or academic institutions, such as LACMA, USC, UCI, and UCLA >>

his name. It is ridiculous to use Ardi for Ardeshir.

But that "name" does not mean anything to Non-Persian when it is used like: "It is our Farhang" -

sounds like a computer game got hung.

When you need to explain it to Iranians and also non-Iranians then you know you did not make the right choice.


"Farhang" is a name.

  Mr Tavangarian (4:40) had changed his name from Ardie to its full version, Ardeshir . After all it is OUR Farhang :)


it is our "PINGLISH"

What the heck is our "It is our Farhang?" either say it in Persian or English.

Plus, if it is persian foundation, why all of this is in English? no-one knows how to speak Persian properly in the Board?
