About Dina Nasser-Khadivi and Cameron Shahbazi
Since the protests began in Iran last September, many Iranians in the diaspora have been trying to raise awareness about Woman Life Freedom through their respective lines of work.
Curator and Art Consultant Dina Nasser-Khadivi has worked towards raising awareness via storytelling and through the non-profit initiative @Postitforwardwlf: an educational concept involving the distribution of T-Shirts and tote bags embedded with a QR which links to a site including podcasts, articles, relevant petitions and social media pages. This grassroots project, now present in six continents, aims at bridging cultures and supporting intersectionality while gradually shaping a global collective in the creative community.
Iranian-Canadian countertenor Cameron Shahbazi who is a rising star in the Opera world has been supporting and communicating the importance of this movement through his beautiful performances, interviews and social media pages. Last December, he presented a benefit concert in collaboration with Opera for Peace and Oper Frankfurt in support of human rights in Iran which also streamed online via IDAGIO and Deutsche Grammophon’s STAGE+
