In the Conversations project, our partners in Romooz aim to create a safe space where artists and art practitioners working in the Yemeni cultural sphere can discuss common challenges and paths forward. The fifteen artists and cultural practitioners who participated in the project are representatives of the Yemeni cultural scene’s striking diversity. Romooz produced a report for conversations between Yemeni creatives both at home and in the diaspora — from Sana’a to the United Kingdom, from Aden to Lebanon.
Director of Romooz Foundation, Ibi Ibrahim says "we aim to foster an open discourse about what the pressing needs of Yemeni artists are, and how collectively we can overcome challenges and continue to bring heavy and important conversations to our art practice and programming."
