In Issue 11, Ward continues to explore the work of Saudi-based artists who enrich the cultural scene, one artwork at a time. We interviewed Amaal Alhifzi, founder of Breathe by Art, and discussed art healing, our community’s perception of art, and what it takes to establish a social initiative. Join us in reading Mona Eltahawy’s Scarves and Hymens as part of Ward Reads by checking the schedule below. We are also thrilled to announce our upcoming themed issue that tackles gender identity and the complexity of our bodies.

Ward is Reading
Join Ward’s book club, Ward Reads, where we discuss various books by local authors and authors from around the globe. We will start 2019 by reading feminist author and activist Mona Eltahawy’s Scarves and Hymens. It starts with the simple declaration, “I own my body!”
He, She, They: Gender Issue
What is the difference between biological sex and gender? How does language shape our perception of our gender identities? Why is it necessary to ask for preferred pronouns? Join us in discussing the concept of gender and body by submitting your work to our upcoming issue.
