Yasmeen Nematt Alla (she/her) is an Egyptian artist and art worker living in Tkaronto, Ontario. Her practice approaches alienated narratives from an interpreter’s perspective. As someone who lives between cultures, she deciphers language barriers attached to alienation and otherness. She wonders how the translation of language, experiences, and visuals intertwine with care, grief, and community building. She is currently the Communications Manager at Akimbo Arts and has most recently exhibited at the Gladstone, Xpace Cultural Center, and ACRE Projects.
When she isn't creating art, she is a communications specialist who creates accessible designs and freelance branding for art organizations, NGOs, and start-ups. You can find her facilitating community workshops about trauma and storytelling or in coffee shops crying about fictional characters.
