Nehad Khader: 2008 Art and Change Grant Recipient
Nehad received an Art and Change grant to interview local Palestinian women and facilitate two community gatherings where they shared their work and stories, and taught tatreez, traditional cross-stitch embroidery, to younger Palestinian women. While the main art in this project was tatreez, other traditional art forms were recorded, like ululation, storytelling, and song. This phase of the project culminated with an exhibit of the artwork and photos of the process at the Philadelphia Folklore Project.
