3EIB x AWAN: Patterns of Protest

7 March '24 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Join us for an evening of reflection, connection and sounds, guided by the narratives of female Palestinian voices. Four fashion designers of 3EIB collective – Mai Zarkawi, Dana Khoury, Elissar El Hammoud and Karmel Sabri will explore the theme of decolonising fashion in an intimate discussion, reflecting on notions of identity, creativity and resistance in the present.

The panel will be followed by a sequel of sonic resistance. Karmel Sabri will debut a collage that layers sounds, songs and words in response to Gaza. Bint Mbareh will improvise a piece rooted in archival research exploring the social context of the Arabic word 3eib (عيب / in English shame) through humour and uncouth subversions.

This event is curated by Dania Arafeh, a Palestinian British curator and founder of 3EIB – a platform showcasing independent fashion brands from the SWANA region.

Hosted by AWAN festival and The Mosaic Rooms.

This event is supported by The Mosaic Rooms, Arts Canteen, Arts Council England, Bagri Foundation and Cockayne Foundation.
