EC Bristol Drinks 5th May: Trekking & Climbing in Iran with Shirin, Iran's first female mountain leader

Meet like-minded people. Get inspired. Everyone welcome. Thursday 5th May

6.30pm Doors open.

7.30pm Shirin Shabestari will talk about trekking and climbing in Iran

Growing up Iran, childhood trips to the mountains with her father gave Shirin a taste for adventure and a sense of freedom. Now living in London with a young family, Shirin shares her love for the mountains and culture of Iran through running expeditions to Damavand, Iran’s highest peak.

The talk will include a screening of Damavand – an Iranian Dream, which follows a ski-mountaineering team from the UK, led by Shirin, and examines the pivotal role mountaineering played in her upbringing. Watch a preview clip of Damavand – an Iranian Dream on Vimeo
