Empowering Voices: A Davis Project for Peace
March 2013 — Present
Empowering Voices, funded by the Davis Projects for Peace, brings together Syrian artists in Amman--allowing for self-expression and a way to engage Jordanian society with the nuance of the Syrian civil war. There are two short-term components of the project: (1) creation of a network of artistic agents of change among Syrian refugees (2) establishment of a public exposition--a type of community gallery--displaying the works of this network across the city.
As the founder of Empowering Voices I planned the original project and managed project logistics from concept to completion in summer 2013.
