2015 Cairo
Artistic direction by Saadia Hussain

Speak Out Sister is a Mural Art project which took place in Cairo in 2015. A co-creating process designed by me. The participants were led step by step through the creative process discussing, imagining and creating images. The focus was on the female voices and stories created and shared. A collective image emerged with all the stories gathered and shared during the process. Which was painted on to a public wall and made visible for a wider audience in the public space. The participants learnt about all the steps involved in the making of a mural painting. From the idea to the visible image on the wall and also explore how the visibility of their stories interact with the city.
