The City Artists Corps Showcase at Queens Theatre
After The Cut

Type of event: Hybrid Artist Talk and Multimedia
After The Incision is an artist talk and reading with artists and activists who are survivors of female genital cutting, including myself. Partnered with Scarlet Udaan, Sahiyo, Culture Push, Dearest Mearest, and Exiled Tongues the talk will center around how being survivors of FGC inform our creative practices, media representation of survivors of FGC, reclaiming the survivor narrative in our art, and how and why inclusivity is imperative in the fight against FGC. It will follow with a showcase of work by each speaker. The speakers will include Dena Igusti, Mariya Taher, and Farzana Doctor.
