Mohammed is a nationally touring poet and writer from Jerusalem, Palestine. He writes in both Arabic and English. He considers writing in English extremely important because the narrative of the Palestinian people have been hijacked, shut down, and manipulated by the English-speaking press. Author of Radical Blankets and upcoming book, RIFQA, El-Kurd writes about the intersections of the Palestinian struggle with resistance movements around the world, social norms and gender, islamophobia and the complexities of the Palestinian identity.

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY:

ATL Radical Art is a collective of local Atlanta artists committed to the creation of a radical and artistic counterculture in response to the social and political climate of our time. Our Artists engage in performances/experiments that shed light on topics of intersectional struggle, liberation and protest from around the globe. Our vision is to create create spaces and works that thrive independent of institutional funding, finding its strength in community support. This community is primarily for people of color, non-men, queer & trans artists across multiple disciplines as well as accomplices who are working jointly with us towards similar goals and prioritize the visibility of said communities in Atlanta’s art scene.
