::MEENA NANJI has been living in Los Angeles since 1981 and now divides her
time between Los Angeles and New Delhi. She has been working in independent
film and video for the last eight years, receiving her MFA in Film/Video
from California Institute of the Arts in 1993. Meena has produced and
directed several videos that have screened internationally at festivals,
universities, museums, galleries and on television. She is currently
directing two videos: Loose Threads, (working title), about 2nd generation
South Asian youth in Los Angeles, and Women and War, (working title), a
video documentary about Afghan women refugees living in Pakistan today.
::SONALI KOLHATKAR is an Applications Developer at the California Institute
of Technology and Vice President of the Afghan Women's Mission. The Afghan
Women's Mission is working in solidarity with Afghans to help improve
health and educational facilities for Afghan refugees in Pakistan. Sonali
has undergraduate degrees in Physics and Astronomy from the University of
Texas, and a Masters degree in Astrophysics from the University of Hawaii.
She has spoken out about women's rights and human rights in Afghanistan as
well as the responsibility of the US to the people of Afghanistan.
::SHAHID NADEEM, a playwright, TV Director, journalist, human rights
activist, has written more than 30 plays and eight television serials for
Pakistani television, many of which were also performed through-out Asia and
in Britain. He is the in-house playwright for Ajoka Theatre, Pakistan1s
leading non-commercial theatre group. As a human rights activist he has
worked for Amnesty International since 1980. He was imprisoned under all
three military governments in Pakistan because of his non-violent opposition
to military rule and his writings. He had to stay in exile from 1979-1988
and only returned when General Zia-ul-Haq died. He has been harassed by the
government since his return for writing about Pakistan1s human rights record
and for supporting Indian-Pakistani friendship. In 1998, he was fired after
his play, an adaptation of a Brecht play on Hitler, was regarded as an
attack on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and for openly criticizing government
interference in Pakistani Television affairs. Shahid's most recent
television serial, GHAIRAT ('Honor'), broadcast July through September of
this year, portrays fictionalized accounts based on true stories of violence
against women in Pakistan.
While competing definitions of "the global" and "the local" are being
thrown about in a myriad current political and economic debates, Los
Angeles continues, like most major cities, to house a constantly
fluctuating mass of natives, migrants and visitors. Even with the much
heralded isolation of LA "car culture", these populations meet, exchange
information, and share knowledge. Recognizing this fluid process as a
resource, NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA organizes public discussions between people
who live in Los Angeles and people who visit the city. Taking its form and
motivation from NOMADS + RESIDENTS in New York City, NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA
creates a network among people interested in
contemporary/political/intellectual discussions in the context of cultural
production. NOMADS+RESIDENTS_LA is organized by a group of artists,
writers and curators. Event locations will circulate throughout the city.
