Today is the #internationaldayofpeace. In light of this, we would like to take the opportunity to honour one exceptional woman. Aziza (30) lives in the Beddawi camp for Palestinian refugees (Lebanon). She lost her brother 10 years ago, during the 2007 war in the Nahr al-Bared camp for Palestinian refugees. He was killed as the family were being evacuated from the camp due to the fighting. Aziza now works at a children’s centre in Nahr al-Bared, which is funded by Christian Aid and run by our partner Association Najdeh. She teaches a class of 10-12-year-olds, called the ‘Palestine Flower’. Through her work at the centre, she helps child refugees to recover from the impact of violence and conflict, and improve their wellbeing, in a safe, peaceful environment. She also helps to provide support groups for parents and caregivers. Thanks to Aziza, many souls have been able to find a degree of peace, in a lifetime of conflict.
This week has been HARD but PHENOMENAL. I have been inspired by so many STRONG wahine who have shared their stories and encouraged me to continue writing mine. I feel PRIVILEGED to have had the opportunity to work with exceptional young performers to bring The Collective to life, and start Suffrage125 week with forceful, difficult questions about women's rights. I had the privilege of attending a workshop with Vanisa Dhiru this morning who reminded me to achieve big - continue to break down barriers and challenge prejudices! And I have had the love of my friends around me who have celebrated my strength and lifted me when I was broken. #rosietheriveter#suffrage125#thecollective#blessings
I normally don’t make reproductions because I really do love creating original work and giving you one of a kind stuff. But I just made these greeting cards for the holiday season. What do y’all think?! It’s nice to have copies of work that are now in new homes but it feels different, obviously, to me. I’m super stoked to see them on cards tho! And it’s nice to walk down memory lane with these. Thoughts?! Originals or not, that is the question! - 25 different designs to choose from, dm for more info
