Sharing stories and exchange tools to be creative, no matter who you are and where you live. Inspire each other.
Noura Bint Saidan is joining the event as part of her one-week programing in Amsterdam, arrange by SAMA in partnership with the Saudi Arabian Ministry. She will share at New Metropolis her inspirations and challenges of being one of the first Saudi Arabian woman graffiti artist. Noura’s street art practice revolves around reflecting on Saudi Arabian culture and her art pieces can be found on the streets of Riyadh, London and Spain. She has also worked on a social campaign to educate the public on the importance of art.
In this event we will bring together a multicultural group of creators on an event that will contemplate music, storytelling and painting. Noura Bint Saidan, Adnan Atik, Ayoub Kharkhach, Dasha van Amsterdam, Mariëm Firdaus Amgharou (Lady General) will come together to share their stories and creative practices in order to inspire the audience to finding their own creative tools.
Street art is a democratic art movement that is vastly gaining popularity. What was considered vandalism ten years ago is now becoming a highly-sought after valuable art form, capable of initiating widespread discourse on social and political change. Amid this context emerged Saudi Arabian street artist Noura Bint Saidan -- an internationally known artist, renowned for her large scale murals which typically depict a myriad of Saudi Arabian cultural elements. Today she will share her ideas and techniques with us, during this workshop.
