My honours year project is based on the cultural stigma of mental health for young Arab youth.
Amana is a platform focussed for Arabic parents and youth to help improve conversations around mental health. Due to the cultural stigma, there is lack in communication of this taboo topic between the youth and their parents.
Amana is a platform for Arabic youth to come together, interact, socialise and find their creative outlet. Through the form of a tangible product and creative therapy (journal), individuals can leave this platform with a sense of comfort and understanding of self-care.
Amana designed and handcrafted with love.
Amana was a finalist for the DINZ 2019 Best Awards. Student Public Good Category.
