This photography workshop series for young Muslim Women is one of several workshop series by The Truth & Dare Project in partnership with Outburst! Young Muslim Women Project.

About the arts educator – Zahra Agjee is a freelance photographer and graphic artist who practices and resides in Toronto. Her work deals with issues of identity, representation, and the self. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and a Minor in Graphic Design.

The Truth and Dare Project are photography based art-making workshops for young Muslim women. The workshops provide an opportunity to explore identity, strengthen self-confidence and create a sense of belonging.

Outburst! is a movement of young Muslim women in Toronto who are breaking silence and speaking out about violence. As young Muslim women we want to determine the ways in which we define and access safety. Outburst!, a project of the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, is an opportunity for us to build community through art, education and research.
