ABOUT YOUR HOSTS:
Vivian Hua is a writer, filmmaker, and political organizer who is fascinated by synthesizing divergent styles, groups, and schools of thought. Much of her work unifies her interest in the metaphysical with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. After more than a decade of splitting her time between Editor-in-Chief of an arts and music publication called REDEFINE and working as a designer and writer for numerous non-profit organizations, Hua expands upon her artistic and activist career with her latest narrative short film, Searching Skies. Her work can be seen here, or e-mail her at email@example.com.
Ahlaam Ibraahim is a student at University of Washington! Ahlaam enjoys writing and hopes to become a voice for the voiceless.
