Weyam was raised in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas by her Syrian immigrant parents who were displaced from Syria for political dissent. Weyam is a community weaver, energy healer and cultural worker. In her role as Network Weaver, she seeks to support the birth of a world rooted in interdependence, resilience, and regeneration through facilitating deep personal, interpersonal, and cultural transformation and community building. She studied Ethnic Studies and Book Art at Mills College. In her spare time she dreams with her friends to vision for the liberation of Bilad el Sham, the lands now called Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan. She sees art as a powerful tool for collective healing and visioning and as a reminder that “We have on this earth what makes life worth living,” as Mahmoud Darwish writes.
