Kashmiri by Descent- World Citizen by Design
I am a Community Activist, Artist, Writer and Poet and other!
I have been working with cross cultural communities for about 20 years now both as a Community practitioner and an Artist. I have worked collectively with the multicultural diasporas of Yorkshire and beyond, delivering creative, innovative and engaging workshops with a variety of community, voluntary and professional organisations.
I have worked as a workshop leader /speaker delivering multiple subjects for BSSN, youth worker for BMDC, BCAL, & BIASAN funded by Two28, funding from Near Neighbours, speaker for Platforma, Cartwright Hall, NSMM , Bradford Festival and Brad Lit Fest, Opera North and National Literacy Trust.
I am a member of Biasan, where I have been active for at least 10 years now running multiple projects and networking on behalf of Biasan itself. Some of the women we are involved with will be submitting works of Art to show for the conference.
I speak on issues relevant to both refugee and asylum seeker communities and on disparities between classes affecting people now
I also run social actions projects using multiple platforms to take action against social injustice by using Art/Word/Poetry as a platform. My aim is to break down barriers and create opportunities for the common good.
