Food is the thread connecting us to the places and traditions our ancestor left behind, and the thread they created as they embraced new traditions and cultures.
My music explores how sensory experiences can enrich our imagination and connect the fragments of our past.
Exploration of identity is also at the heart of the current work of Creative Community Fellows Adriana Katzew and Yoni Battat.
As a visual artist, the concepts of identity and vulnerability weave themselves into my work, informed by my Jewish and Latina identities.
I’m harnessing vulnerability and doubt as part of my art as I strive to be worthy of representing my Iraqi heritage.
Through both personal development and community engagement, these fellows will explore innovative ways to inspire the Greater Boston community.
Through this process of creating new music, I hope to help us move into and beyond 2021 with a renewed sense of who we are.
