// HIND ELJADID
Hind Eljadid (1993) works with spoken word on a daily basis. The Antwerp artist gives workshops and regularly performs with her own texts. Her literary debut Kruimeldief is also on its way. The Van Dale SPOKEN Award, which she was the only Belgian to receive in 2017, is testimony to her skills as a poet and writer.
Yet especially the socially critical is the beating heart in Hind's art. Her platform ZonderWolk is a social-artistic initiative that, in addition to being a driving force for Belgian slam poetry, is also socially supportive.
Hind her train of thought works inclusive, her second platform Slam Aleikum is proof of that.
In 2018 Hind won the BILL Award Ultima and in 2019 the Emancipation Prize for culture. In 2020 she is a writer, resides in Vooruit Arts Center and won the El Hizjra literature prize for poetry.
