We are a collective of Iraqi women artists and makers who live in Oxfordshire. Led by Iraqi Community Ambassador Rana Ibrahim. We have come together to explore our shared experience of contemporary war, displacement and forced immigration through art, sound and story – our oral histories.
We hope to use treasured yet ‘ordinary objects’, photos and images – past and present, and sounds of war, sorrow, domesticity, and celebration from Iraq and the UK to work towards an exhibition in 2020… ‘Of Ordinary Things’ – the call of women’s voices against war. #iraqiwomenartwar #IWAW
