NABIL MUSA & SAFEN MUHAMMAD
Nabil Musa, Iraq’s first “water keeper”, Kurdish environmentalist and freelance artist based in Sulaymaniyah. Safen Muhammad is the director of ART +, a cultural organisation training children across the region in art and environmental issues, based in Sulaymaniyah. War can incinerate natural resources. In the case of Iraqi Kurdistan these resources have been used as leverage and as weapons against local populations. Nabil and Safen hosted an event to raise awareness on water pollution at Kakay Falah elementary school in Sulaymaniyah. The children learnt how to create art from objects and reused plastic.
