Below is a link to a blog that I follow that I find so inspiring. Kayhan is someone that I met a few years ago on the Television project that I worked on. She is very dedicated to using theatre and the arts as a way to make changes in the world, particularly in the area of children and education. Right now she is in Afghanistan, teaching theatre workshops to young people that have been effected by the war. I think that she is so brave to do this.
In a post that she wrote a few months ago, she used a term that I fell in love with: artivista. The word is a combination of artist and activist. its the perfect word to describe what she does,and describes what I aspire to do as well.I hope you enjoy her blog as much as I do.
