My Life, My Story is presented by local producer and artist Maryam Zahid and Blacktown Arts. My Life, My Story features the debut documentary from Maryam and an exhibition of new works by artists, Arezo Aziz, Sara Barackzay, Lida Sultani Farahin, Neelab Omar and Fozia Zahid and Zahid Ahmed. The exhibition and film draw on interviews with women from the Afghan community in Blacktown and around the world, reflecting on shared lived experiences, triumphs and the strength of the female spirit.
My Life, My Story is supported by Afghan Women on the Move (AWOTM) – a global platform uniting women in the Afghan diaspora to share their life stories through creative arts and storytelling, breaking cycles of isolation and disadvantage.
The exhibition has a full public program to encourage conversation and community connection. More information about these events will be announced at a later date.
