Rania El Mugammar is a Sudanese Artist, Liberation Educator, Abolitionist, Anti-oppression Consultant , multidisciplinary performer, speaker, and published writer. Her work explores reproductive justice, transformative justice & abolition, art as liberation, and digital justice.

As a writer, Rania’s work explores themes of identity, womanhood, Blackness, flight, exile, migration, belonging, gender, sexuality, and beyond. Rania’s primary mediums are poetry, spoken word, and oral storytelling. She is a published poet, storyteller, and playwright. Rania is deeply interested in poetic form and the auditory texture of words as well as the visual/aesthetic impact of language and form.

Rania is an experienced anti-oppression, abolition, and liberation educator and consultant who is unflinchingly committed to decolonization and freedom as the ultimate goals of her work. She has worked extensively with contemporary arts institutions, STEM-based enterprises, media organizations, educational institutions, and community/grassroots spaces.


A multi-sensory installation, Shary Boyle: Outside the Palace of Me explores how we see ourselves and each other through drawings, ceramic sculpture, life-sized automatons, two-way mirrors, coin-operated sculpture, and an interactive score.

Reimagining the museum as a collective performance space, Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle mines histories of craft and obsolete technologies to connect our current realities to legacies of the past. Reversing the frame on her uncanny characters and their destabilized audience, she urges viewers to think critically about how we create both ourselves and the world we inhabit. Learn more
