More than 150 women attended ‘WHAT SHE SAID – Art: Tales, Truths and Triumphs’, a conversation – moderated by Boutaïna Azzabi Ezzaouia, the Senior Engagement Producer and Facebook Lead at Al Jazeera English – about the speakers’ journey in the field of art and film and what it takes to be an artist or filmmaker in the Middle East today. The four speakers; Bouthayna Al Muftah (visual artist), Hend Fakhroo (director and filmmaker), Abeer Al Kuwari (artist) and Amal Al Muftah (filmmaker) provided guests with an inside look into their lives, how they overcame both personal and professional obstacles and gave advice to the women audience.
