This month’s CreativeMornings theme is “Dare.” ATÖLYE Dubai will be hosting CreativeMornings Dubai with Nur M’nasria as the speaker on Wednesday, September 22 at 8:15 AM (GMT+4). The event will take place both in our ATÖLYE Dubai space as well as on Zoom. Find registration details below.

 

About the Theme:

To dare is an act of faith. We work up the nerve to make the soaring leap, even when we don’t know what the outcome will be. At the core of daring, you’ll find bravery and defiance entwined. We dare to challenge the stories passed down to us that no longer fit, the stories that limit our imagination.

 

As we shed the stories that no longer serve us, but a way forward seems uncertain, how can we summon the courage to do impossible things? In The Field Guide to Getting Lost, Rebecca Solnit invites us, “Leave the door open for the unknown, the door into the dark. That’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself came from, and where you will go.” The door is open. Do you dare step through?

 

Our Porto Alegre chapter chose this month’s exploration of Dare, and Mitti Mendonça illustrated the theme.

 

About the Speaker:

Nur M’nasria, an accomplished TV and film producer who started her journey in community service while in her mid-teens. Motivated by her own urban-nomad life of her youth, Nur has been captivated by people with vulnerabilities, specifically impoverished children.

 

Her interest led her to consolidate her community work under Flea 4 Charity, which she co-founded in 2011. Today hundreds of children are being looked after and playgrounds have been established by the team of Play For Smiles since 2015 under Nur’s leadership. In December 2016 she won ITP’s Young Arab Awards as the philanthropist of the year.

 

In parallel to the humanitarian efforts, she has continued her production work since 2008. She has worked as a producer for six seasons of the popular Arabic TV show Khawatir. Nur was also the production manager of an award-winning film “Jareedy”, the first film to be narrated in the Nubian language.

 

Nur strongly believes in the existence of the strength every individual has to be able to accomplish his or her dreams. Her mission in life is to spread and be the source of light, blessings and love.
