A performer at this year’s “Volume: Sisters Make Noise”, Hawa Abdullah has sustained a passion for poetry from a young age. She is a Tanzanian Canadian, with a background in philosophy and anthropology. Hawa believes in the transformative power of art and in the potential for poetry to connect to the hearts and minds of others. She currently shares her words with community through writing and performance. Hawa is also one of the poets featured in our second poetry book: Homebound II/Storytellers I: Muslim Women’s Poetry Collection; and she exhibited at (mus)interpreted Muslim women art gallery show at the Daniels Spectrum!
