Faces Never Forgotten offers an intimate glimpse into the lives of Somalis living in Somaliland, a nation shrouded in misconceptions and myths. These photographs present the humanity in each of these faces. The goal of this project is to provide people with the opportunity to see past the headlines and look into the faces of those living on the margins of society.

For Freedoms is a platform for greater participation in the arts and civil society. We produce exhibitions, installations, public programs, and billboard campaigns to advocate for inclusive civic participation. Inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)–freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear–For Freedoms Federation uses art to encourage and deepen public explorations of freedom in the 21st century.
