Nora Rahimian is a code-switcher and community-builder who helps organizations and artists develop strategies for using entertainment and the arts as tools for social change. With over 10 years of peace-building and social justice organizing experience, Nora has led workshops and projects throughout the United States and in Central America, working with youth and in communities highly affected by violence. Most recently, she lived in Liberia, where she spent three years developing alternative-education programs for higher-risk and out-of-school youth, supporting musicians as they created infrastructure for the country’s budding post-war music industry, and establishing The Hip Co Festival, Liberia’s first music festival which brought together 20,000 people in 2013. She established the Hip Co Accountability Network to engage popular artists as anti-corruption and accountability ambassadors. She now manages Anti-Rape Ambassador and Hip Co Artist of the Year, Takun J. In 2014, she co-founded #CultureFix, a global collaborative network of activists, influencers, and change-makers who use arts and culture to create social change in communities around the world.
