Youth & Engagement Coordinator
Sahar arrived in D&G in the summer of 2021 with a master's degree in Geology and a passion for the arts. An emerging writer and performing artist, who can sometimes be found painting and crafting, she has been developing new skills in drama workshop facilitation and creating topical plays in collaboration with the young participants.
Applying her curious and investigative approach to the science of building vibrant communities, Sahar runs programmes for youth empowerment in her spare time, including arranging workshops to connect young people with artists and makers. As Youth & Engagement Coordinator for Upland, Sahar will bring artists into contact with more and more young people across the region, providing them with a wide range of opportunities to build up their skills, confidence and networks.
