Hind Eljadid

Hind Eljadid is a spoken word artist, a presenter, theatre maker, documentary maker, journalist and much more. The Antwerp artist gives workshops and regularly performs with her own texts. Hind takes inspiration from the injustice in her environment and builds confrontational and strong slam poetry around it with the mission to make people aware of the world they live in. She makes social issues open to discussion, shows her own strong and straightforward opinion, and gives a voice to those who embody a weaker position in society. In 2018, Hind won the BIIL Award Ultima and in 2019 the emancipation prize for culture. In 2020, she won the El Hizjra literature prize for poetry.
