About eL Seed
Born in #Paris to #Tunisian parents, eL Seed travels the world, making #art in Paris, New York, Jeddah, Melbourne, Doha and beyond. His goal: to create #dialogue and promote #tolerance as well as change global perceptions of what #Arabic means. In 2012, he painted a message of unity on a 47-meter-high minaret on the #jaramosque in Gabes, Tunisia. This piece can be found in his book, Lost Walls: #Graffiti #RoadTrip through Tunisia

Recently he created a sprawling #mural in the #manshiyatnaser Naser neighborhood of #Cairo that spans 50 buildings and can only be viewed from a local mountaintop. Intending to honor historic garbage collectors , the piece reads, "Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first." “A #streetartist ... #eLSeed did not learn to read or write Arabic until his late teens, but when he did his renewed interest in his heritage had a profound effect on his art.” — BBC

About Afra Atiq
Afra Atiq is an #Emirati award-winning #poet, having recently won the 2017 @admafsocial Creativity Award. She is the first #spokenword poet to win the award. She proudly gives back to her community through mentorships and workshops with @untitledchapter (a thriving hub for #Emiratiwomen writers). She has been a featured performer/speaker at platforms like @tedxfujairahuae @stepmusicfest @nyuadartscenter as well as at numerous universities and schools. Afra was named Best Performer for 2015-16 by @rooftop_rhythms and has won multiple #poetryslam competitions. Enjoy!! 🎤🎧😎😎
