Press Release

Rawiya Collective – the first Middle Eastern female photography collective – presents In Her Absence I Created Her Image, an exhibit for Open Source Gallery. In collaboration with Open Source Gallery, and inspired by Rawiya, THE CREATORS COLLECTIVE presents a series of performances from dance and theater artists at the gallery.

The works performed are either inspired by the photographs in the exhibit, the meaning of Rawiya which is “she who tells a story” or the Rawiya Collective’s goal of dispelling stereotypes to encourage a more compassionate and empathetic worldview.
