About: Anahita Dehbonehie is an Iranian artist currently based in Toronto. Her practice extends across design, direction and playwriting. As an artist committed to work that questions positions of power and creates space for contemporary conversation, Anahita is grateful for the opportunity to explore complex but increasingly timely questions around climate justice- Namely: how much are we willing to sacrifice in the present to save the future?
