Title

The Sisters Project: Photography as a Tool for Social Change
with Alia Youssef

Description

Join us for an inspiring talk from Egyptian-Canadian photographer Alia Youssef, whose recent photography series, The Sisters Project, is shattering stereotypes of what it means to be a Muslim woman.

Frustrated by the media’s limited representations, and in light of the growing number of crimes against Muslim women, Youssef has made it her mission to show the reality that Canadian Muslim women are not only diverse, but also empowered, engaged, and inspirational figures. In this Changemakers Talk, Youssef will share how her acclaimed project came to fruition and grew to become an empowering space of inclusion and belonging for all self-identifying Muslim women to embrace their unique identities.

Our Changemakers Talk Series delves into the critical conversations of our times, and this season showcases four exceptional women forging new paths in art and activism around the world.
