Birds of No Nation: Afghan Women on Art, Gender, Freedom, and Exile Workshop

On International Women’s Day, join us for two events exploring the powerful role the arts and creativity play in global struggles for women’s rights, featuring exiled Afghan graffiti artist and muralist Shamsia Hassani and acclaimed Afghan American multimedia artist Gazelle Samizay

In the afternoon, artists, activists, and all supporters of human rights are invited to make public art with Hassani, known for her mural series Birds of No Nation, which explores Afghan refugee and migration experiences, and Samizay, whose photo and video work examines the contradictions of culture, nationality, and gender. Supplies will be provided, and no experience is necessary.
