Hannah Said is an artist living in Berkeley, California. Hannah's professional career has been focused on Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) within various tech companies and non-profits. She has recently decided to take her professional DEI career and blend it with her personal passion for art and culture, resulting in her Shame // Reflections show.
Shame // Reflections is a community-based art project designed to shine a light on the shadows of shame and misogyny in America. This show pulls together images and stories from individual women who have been shamed and isolated, and weaves in the incredible healing power of empathy and collectively bearing witness.
Shame // Reflections documents the way misogyny impacts Muslim women externally and internally. The show expresses the pain and confusion of a Muslim woman's identity in today's political climate but weaves a silver lining of courage, resilience, and communal healing.
