News | Displaced Artists Initiative

Co-sponsored by the Columbia Global Paris Center and Institute for Ideas and Imagination, the Displaced Artists Initiative is designed to support artists who have had to leave their countries of origin due to extreme circumstances (war, natural disaster, political oppression).

For the 2024-2025 year, the Reid Hall Displaced Artist Residents are Palestinian poet Doha Kahlout and Ugandan dancer Haman Mpadire. For the 2023-24 year, the residents were Afghan-Iranian author Aliyeh Ataei and the 1991 Project, a non-profit association whose purpose is to safeguard and promote Ukrainian music.
