2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ya Shoosh will curate Kweerz Mara Min Hona (Queers Were Here): A Muslim Visibility Project. This two-part project will feature a mixed media art installation with interviews from queer and trans Muslims alongside a portrait series. Ya Shoosh plans to share the project in a community space to facilitate dialogue around pressing issues. There will also be a potluck gathering in conjunction with the exhibition opening. The project will expand to culminate in the creation of a website to engage with other LGBTQ+ Muslim artists.
