Nida Sinnokrot

Nida Sinnokrot is the cofounder – with architect Sahar Qawasmi – of Sakiya an international Art/Science/Agriculture residency programme with a mandate to bring international and local practitioners together for academic, artistic and ecological interventions emphasising sustainable practices across disciplines. Sakiya arose from a belief that cultural initiatives must recognise and halt the extremism affecting our societies, politics and environment alike and as such become a potent artwork in itself.
