Artist in Residence


2018 Artist in Residence

The City of Kitchener, welcomes the 2018 Artist in Residence, Sumaira Tazeen, who will engage female newcomers and the broader community in an open dialogue about cultural identity, displacement and belonging in her yearlong project titled, "Healing and Surviving: Sabz Bagh (The grass is greener)".

During her residency, Sumaira will lead a series of creative, textile based art projects encouraging female newcomers to share their stories of re-settlement. The artworks and stories will be incorporated into a collaborative art installation at the end of 2018, to be diplayed at city hall.

She will also engage the community at large through art activities, demonstrations and performances at local festivals and events.
