How can we tap into the creative energy within us — whether through music, drawing or cooking — to sustain ourselves and to connect with others? Many of us may not think of ourselves as creative and we can get stuck in the dominant narratives that define who is an artist and that lead us to silo art in our social and climate justice work. But if we could look inwards and reclaim, embrace and nurture our creativity, what would that open up for us?
Sandie Hanna — a feminist, human rights and anti-imperialist activist — found a safe space and survival technique in art and creativity while growing up amidst colonial oppression in Palestine. She's the Accompaniment Manager at Purposeful, an Africa-rooted global hub for girls activism, and the founder of Feminist Diaries, a collective of young women and girls that analyze and produce art to share stories about their activism journeys, their lived realities and the feminist world they want to co-shape. Join us on April 26 as she guides us through a visualization process to help tap into our creative energy.
Sandie Hanna is a feminist, human rights and anti-imperialist activist from Occupied Palestine. She's a friend, sister, comrade, and art-lover.
She truly believes that dismantling oppression towards social and political collective liberation necessarily requires bold commitment to intersectionality, intergenerational connectedness and politicization among others. Sandie is a member of the women’s rights regional network Karama; and the founder of Feminist Diaries, a collective of young women and girls that analyze and produce art to share stories about their activism journeys, their lived realities and the feminist world they want to co-shape.
Prior to her role as Accompaniment Manager at Purposeful, she held positions of program management and advocacy at the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development, and led community based interventions with adolescents and children using art therapeutic approaches. Her film “25/11” addresses the so called “honor killing” criticizing patriarchal dominance and asymmetries in gender relations, perpetuated by social norms and the in-effect outdated discriminatory laws in Palestine.
