Tiara Shafiq

I work with creative arts & media, technology, games, community cultural development, and education to explore ideas around community, identity, liminality, belonging, and social justice. I’m a life-long writer, a strident activist for rights to self-determination and personal choice, and have built a reputation for creating challenging, catalyzing creative & community work that deals with race, gender, sexuality, and nationality. Currently I’m very interested in exploring the ways that arts, media, performance, games, and other mediums can be used to convey and support experiences of transience and flux while also building empathy and understanding for experiences and stories outside one’s own.
