FT. Sabina Khan, Nafiza Azad, Mintie Das.
Moderated by Roohi Sahajpal of Didihood.
If you’re brown you know that many young people are encouraged to find their career in traditional roles such as engineer or doctor or lawyer? What happens if you don’t want to go into that career? What if your passion lies elsewhere? Maybe as a writer, painter, singer, dancer, etc.? Being brown and creative isn’t easy. It can be hard to see your passions dismissed as nothing but a timepass, or if you follow your passion then maybe the subject matter will raise shockwaves through the community, and then what? After all log kya kahenge (what will people say) over all else right?
In this panel in partnership with Didihood we’ll be discussing what it means to be a brown womxn creative in a world that is not just getting used to the idea of representation, diversity, and inclusion, but in a community that is just starting to open their eyes to the power of creativity. We’ll be discussing the struggles and power in being brown womxn bringing light into the world one piece of art at a time.
