Farha Najah is a second generation immigrant settler living in Tio’tia:ke (Montreal). Her origins are traced to the nation states known as Pakistan and India, specifically the provinces of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Sindh. Among other identities, she identifies as Queer Muslim. Her visual art-activist practice, including Urdu-Hindi calligraphy via Arabic-Persian Script, is rooted in non-hierarchical and empowerment-based learning approaches, intersectional feminist work, and intergenerational activism. As part of struggles against racism, colonialism, hetero-patriarchy, ableism, capitalism, and the violence inherent in the police and borders, she is interested in focusing not only on what we are against, but also what we are for, as we seek caring, just, and loving moments, relationships, movements, and spaces. farha-najah.com @farha.najah.art
