Storytelling Show – Hoda Hamouda

“A multiplicity of perspectives is what we need to understand ourselves and each other better.” – Designer Hoda Hamouda

World events over the past few weeks, and particularly this weekend, have reminded me of this Storytelling Show conversation I had in January 2016 with my brilliant Emily Carr U colleague, designer Hoda Hamouda. Here we discuss her work surrounding Tahrir Square during the 2011 revolution in Egypt and how citizen media can counter hegemonic narratives in times of resistance.
