I am an artist, experienced in graffiti art and children’s art, and with these skills I design and deliver educational and cultural programs for children and young people, using art as the vehicle. 

I have taken part in many conferences throughout Palestine and other Arab countries, as well as many international conferences and seminars. I am also responsible for many programs focused on raising awareness and dealing with art and graffiti issues. The aim of these programs is to explore how to use art in a peaceful way, and most importantly, to keep the children of Palestine safe.

I have an established art project (100 Ways For Peace from Palestine) that has toured many countries and now, having met the He Ao Kotahi team, I would love to come to New Zealand one day, along with my students to exhibit our work.
