Esfandiar is the founder of Pardis Literary Group - The Society of Creative Artist- from 1995 until 2005.The group run over 200 gathering and over 5000 hours critical debates which are ready to be published on the web . Bellow are the original documents related to my report to the public in International Hotel in London when the group went public after many years of private gathering.
there is a list of sample programs of the long list of the group activities.
the group in term of introducing art and critical thinking were more active than any other Iranian Communities in London at the time. The number of talk were more than the Pen Society and the Society of Writers in Exile in the area of literature and art we were more active than Iranian Community in London, Kanoon Iran and the Iranian Community in West of London (Omid).
Pardis then the name to the "Thursday Group" since the gathering was on Thursdays.
in my note I explain how the group formed and where the meeting took place.
