Join us for a special event with Palestinian storyteller Razan Samara.

Palestinian embroidery is known as tatreez in Arabic. Tatreez is a language of love, land, and decolonial resistance. This workshop will introduce participants to this embroidery technique (one of many tatreez techniques), while telling the stories of Palestinian women's labour, livelihoods, and cultural resistance from Turtle Island to Palestine and beyond.

Register for this workshop here.

This program is presented as part of the exhibition The Infrastructures of Dissent, curated by Mitra Fakhrashrafi and Tara Bursey.

RAZAN SAMARA is a Palestinian storyteller living on Turtle Island (near Tkaronto/Toronto). Her work is grounded in elevating diverse community voices and experiences. Her writing has appeared in the Silhouette and Canadian Art Magazine, and she was recognized as Best Journalist at the 2018 Hamilton Independent Media Awards.
