Maya Ouabadi was born in 1988 in Algiers where she lives and works. After studying French literature, she worked for a few years at the Barzakh publishing house, then as an independent publisher. Parallel to her activities in publishing, she was a member of the cultural association Chrysalide and the organizing committee of the literary season in Mali.  In 2018 she founded the publishing house Motifs, which publishes, among other things, the bilingual (French-Arabic) literary criticism journal “Fassl”, which offers in-depth reviews, interviews and portraits of Algerian and foreign authors, as well as unpublished texts.

Graeme Thomson & Silvia Maglioni are filmmakers and artists interested in the porous border between fiction and documentary. Their practice interrogates potential forms and fictions emerging from the ruins of the moving image and includes the creation of short and feature films, exhibitions, sound works, film-performances, radio shows, “vernacular technologies” and books. The artists often make use of cinema in expanded form to reactivate lost or forgotten archives and histories and to create new modes of collective vision and engagement with contemporary thought and politics. Their films have been selected at numerous international festivals and their work is regularly presented in museums and art spaces around the world. They currently live between Paris and Palermo, where they are writing a new film.

My name is Lina Issa, a woman of color, artist, mediterranean, mother, writer, hetrosexual, in ‘full’ physical ability, migrant, multi-lingual… I make performances, videos, interventions in organisations, I curate and facilitate festivals, cultural programs and Table talks, I design and cook food events where embodied memory and storytelling are triggered and guided by tasting and eating. I collect and narrate stories. I wrote a novel and have started writing on methodologies of working with communities, with care at the Museum of World Cultures in The Netherlands and before at the Medical University of Amsterdam. Through my work I find myself creating conditions for personal relationships within complex contexts and for insisting on the personal as political, and creating conditions to practice empathy and hope for they are labour, to unlearn my identity, to listen to and speak through the body, to have detailed encounters, and to establish vulnerability as a Norm.

Verity Spott is a poet, performer and musician from Brighton. Their books include Gideon, Click Away Close Door Say, The Mutiny Aboard the RV Felicity, We Will Bury You, Hopelessness and Coronelles – Set 1. Verity co runs the long running poetry and performance event Horseplay, teaches poetry at New Writing South and is currently the commissioning editor of Contraband Books. Verity plays cello in the free improvisation trio In Threads.
