Amir Khadar (They/Them) is a Sierra Leonean-American artist, designer, and educator from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their main mediums are poetry, fibers, and digital art. They are actively experimenting and growing as an artist through establishing relationships to ways of making, but their practice has always been grounded through afro-futurism, gender theory, beauty, and ancestral practices. They have done extensive art/design work with the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Parenting for liberation, Wakanda Dream Lab, Forward Together, and the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice.
As a speaker Amir has given talks and been on panels about their personal work, liberation in arts, and art in social movements -specifically movements for Black liberation, Black immigrants, trans people, and LGBTQ POC. Amir is currently a student at Swarthmore College working towards a B.A in Black Studies.
