O Lone Traveller (یا مسافر وحدک) addresses themes of border-passing, surveillance, and self-censorship in a time of urgency that demands appropriate response and awareness. In becoming aware of our rights, creating access and performing them, we can move towards subverting our damaged narratives, reclaiming our experiences, and making visible the invisible practices at the border. This contribution is a pair of guides: one for self-reflection and one for educators.

The publication consists of:
Foreword by Mitra Fakhrashrafi
Introduction by Mélika Hashemi
Self-Reflective Guide by Shirin Fahimi
Educator’s Guide by Mélika Hashemi
Complementary Sheets
Featured Works by Joyce Joumaa and Nima Esmailpour
Conclusion and Future Work by Mélika Hashemi

We hope to see you at the launch!
Please note: masks are required inside Art Metropole.
Refreshments will be provided outdoors during the reception portion of the event.⁠
