Maitha AlSuwaidi

Maitha AlSuwaidi is a performance artist, writer, and researcher. She finds a vibrant and fluid synthesis of those three identifications through her work on politics and the internet, Ajami identity in the Gulf, the domestic and built environment, and Khaeelji folktales. She enjoys exploring intersectional/interdisciplinary themes within the ecosystems she exists and has existed in.

As a poet, AlSuwaidi has performed her spoken poetry in internationally renowned spaces like the 2022 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. She is also a performance artist in both experimental and traditional theater spaces, where she enjoys creating multimedia spoken-word pieces, incorporating visual, sonic, and digital components. AlSuwaidi graduated from NYUAD with a bachelor's in Political Science, and from a master’s in Public Policy University of Oxford as a UAE Rhodes Scholar.
