Rima Ibrahim is a completely self-taught emerging artist. She is Syrian and was temporarily displaced in Lebanon before finally finding refuge in Victoria on Lekwungen territories. Rima is also the mother of Nour and two sons, Ahmad and Mohamed. Since Rima was young, she has held this immense love for everyone. Despite living through both physical and psychological wars, Rima came through it and won. Rima practices several art mediums and enjoys experimenting with new ones. Rima’s art is a testament to her resilience, sensitivity, and love.
The fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.
The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.
As a collective we endeavour to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
The entrance to the fifty fifty arts collective is wheelchair accessible, however, the door is not automatic and we have no washrooms on site. A more comprehensive statement regarding our accessibility is in progress, specific questions or requests regarding accessibility can be sent to [email protected]
