Beyond the War: Reconnecting to Roots Through Art

Join CODEPINK and Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation for a conversation with Yemeni-American artist Noor Qwfan. The “Beyond the War” Yemen cultural series will attempt to showcase Yemen outside the realm of tragedy with an emphasis on Yemeni history, celebrations, and excellence! We will be reading questions from the audience to Noor throughout the webinar. CODEPINK’s Danaka Katovich and Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation’s Arwa Mokdad will be hosting this webinar. 

Born in Yemen and raised in the Central Valley of California, Noor Qwfan works in corporate social responsibility and is the creator of Noor's Nook (@noors_nook) an expressive outlet for her creative tendencies. For Noor, most of her illustrations are more than just a creative outlet, they are also a way for her to remember her life in Yemen, connect with her culture and showcase it to the world. She is also the creator and host of This Muslim Girl Podcast (@thismuslimgirlpodcast), a platform started in 2017 to amplify the voices of Muslim women and their experiences. Check Noor out on Instagram and on Etsy! Read about Noor and her work in the Middle East Eye
