Dana Dajani (She/Her) | Mother Nature

May 2021

 Dana Dajani is an award-winning Palestinian writer, performer, and activist, whose list of achievements is far too long to fit into one little bio! Her background is in theatre, which clearly still influences her unique style of solo performance poetry. Part spoken-word, part one-woman show, Dana uses gesture, character, and a simple scarf to transport audiences through different themes, personas, and perspectives.

Ranging from the political to the personal, she discusses themes such as the industrialisation of beauty, Palestine, immigration, and identity. These hard-hitting topics combined with Dana's witty yet sincere performances have earned her a host of accolades internationally, and she was the Artist in Residence at the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival in 2019. She continues to collaborate with internationally acclaimed musicians in the Middle East and Europe to blend poetry and music in live performance, whilst also hosting workshops designed to help people to deepen self-awareness through writing, review and reflection.   

Connect with creativity

Do you remember the last time?

The last time you painted, penned a poem, pretended to be an aeroplane! - did something you loved!?

Yet as you grew older, the passions that you once had took a backseat to life.

We believe that our passions should never take a backseat. We believe that the things that make us 'us' are the things that make life worth living - the things that make life fulfilling!

We're on a mission to make yesterday's dreams today's reality.

And we're starting with you. 

The Email Edition

Consisting of two carefully curated emails per month, our Email Edition is a treasure trove of inspiration.

A place where you can discover talented grassroots artists, be inspired by our poets dancing words, and a place where you can a creative community.

As part of our mission to make art accessible to everybody (because creativity inspires creativity!), we type up a few extra poems each month.

If you provide us with your address, you may wake up one morning to find a Poem by Post perched 'pon your doormat!

Oh, and we don't do anything weird with your data... No selling it, sharing it, or caressing it!

We just send you a dash of inspiration here, and a pinch of motivation there...
