“Scattering Dreams” seeks artists whose artwork addresses global immigration and refugee crisis. Every day, we are bombarded with news stories and images from around the world of immigration, citizenship, asylum seekers, refugees, detention and deportation. There are over 43 million refugees in the world today, the largest number in history. In Georgia, ten percent of the state’s population was born in another country, while 1 in 13 Georgians is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent.


How can we, as artists, create and present artwork that sparks critical thinking, empowers alternative narratives, and inspires ourselves and our communities to be more aware and compassionate to the plight of people – often our neighbors - caught in these political and environmental crises?

Rozina Shiraz Gliani is the ArtsXchange 2019 Ebon Dooley Arts and Social Justice Awards Emerging Leader Honoree.

Trained in several classical and contemporary dance forms, Gilani specializes in Indian classical dance and completed her Arangetram (graduation/debut) ceremony in 2004 under the guidance of her guru Mrs. Dina Sheth. Her research focusing on representations of identity, collective memory and post-trauma in the Palestinian performing arts goes together with her work as a performing artist. Uplifting story and storyteller in the process of salvaging ethnography, an approach used in fighting the erasure and the censorship of resistance art informs her work.
