About Me

Because one blog is not enough for the mindless poetry that I spew, check out my other blog Diary of A DeskGirl. And if, for some obscure reason, you want to contact me -hopefully to send free chocolate, shoes and plane tickets, email me at suzeeinthecity@gmail.com.

    Ugh, just found your blog now, after leaving Cairo a few days ago. Would have loved to connect and go on a street art adventure. Filing this away for next time… (PS: Just did a post on stencils I saw there, would love any context you can offer!)

    • Dear Moira – I am nominating Suzie for a global award for the work she has done in memorializing and documenting the revolution through street art. Can you send me a paragraph on how/why this type of memorialization is significant so that I can include teh language in the nomination form? Many thanks, Nora

    Heyy
    Ive been reading your blog for my art project and its just great – like seriously. I see that most of your expreiences of the revoloution on the whole are ones i can relate to also, which is very touching. I was just wondering about your background as i noticed someone in tahrir reffered to you as an “agnabeya” which interested me. not sure if you put any background info on this blog…. im just not that good at navigating around the pages on here but id love to know a little about you as a preson :) not trying to be nosey (well maybe just a little)
    Also, id love to be able to quote you in my are project if that’s okay (as i have a feeling we may be in similar positions regarding Egypt and the revoloution) and maybe use some of the photos you took?? i went round and took my own but many of them i took too late – after the graffiti has been worn down and some of the graffiti isnt clear….
    hope you can help mee :D
    thanks so much, keep posting!

    p.s. a little about me just for reference:
    15 year old girl, im origionally from gaza, plaestine, but have mixed parents – one palestinian and one british (very stange mix).
    i like to think im involved with the revoloution, or atleast was, as ive given up most of my hope now :S ……
    umm… i lived in palestine for 5 years, uk for 5 years and now egypt for 5 so ive moved around alot and i do speak 3arabi :p
    probably boring you by now sooo…
    you can email me on nadia.samir7214@hotmail.com or facebook Nadia Samir Abu Sakran
    thankss,
    Nadia

  9. Hi there,
    Great blog by the way!!!

    I’m teaching art to 60 young budding artists who are studying Ancient Egypt. I was hoping to link in Alaa Awad’s graffiti’s art into my art lesson. I was looking for an interview with him that was in English. Do you know of any? Or anyone else with an Ancient Egyptian influence in a modern setting that is appropriate for children of 11-12 years old?

    Thanks so much.
