Tekah Tekah Workshop
January 28th, 9:30am – 11:30am
Join us for the Tekeh Tekeh Workshop! Led by Afghan American artist Gazelle Samizay, in partnership with ARTogether, the Tekah Tekah Project (Dari: “Piece by Piece”) is a community art project designed to tell the stories of newly-arrived Afghan refugees in the Bay Area.
Tekah Tekah will be a creative space for Afghan women to tell their own stories drawing from their own narratives and cultural contexts, connecting artists with women from the Afghan refugee community to exploring creative art forms such as embroidery, textile painting, cyanotype, quilt-making, and visual storytelling.
With groups of 5-10 Afghan refugee women participants, 4 community art workshops will be offered monthly in Oakland, each featuring different art forms taught by collaborating refugee and immigrant artists fluent in Dari.
