Noor (she/elle/هي/ella) is a sun-loving poet, educator and independent consultant. A migrant daughter raised across many spaces and people, mainly on the traditional, unceded & ongoing territories of the Kanien’kehá:ka and the Anishinaabe. Ancestral roots in cedar trees, the sunrise and hereditary ties to بحر الشام. Interested in community-directed, anti-oppressive and justice approaches to living, learning and being in relation to each other, the land and waters.


Some of my work as an artist-educator involves spoken word poetry as a way to listen to marginalized voices tell their counternarratives by naming, challenging and resisting systemic oppression. With fear, with love, with (out)rage. Read "Alone" by Maya Angelou when I was 12 and still think about it to this day (praise to ma for purchasing Angelou's collection of poetry and repeatedly highlighting the importance of literature throughout my life). I also enjoy content creation and production for podcasts, short films, and other creative forms of digital storytelling. Outside work, I like creating/building, farming and working on horse ranches. Living sustainably is my jam and something I strive for.


I acknowledge and recognize Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination, and hope to live in ways that honour Indigenous Peoples and their stewardship of the lands and waters since time immemorial.

Cedars of God in Bsharri- NE_edited.jpg

Make me a cedar tree

with salt of the earth

in my mane, my name

written on branches

older, wiser

than any carving in stone

Got a project, program and/or pitch and are looking for a creative collaborator?
