Leyla Sünnenwold is an Artistic Researcher who loves to give creative workshops – usually in an art education context and working with young people. Her own practice revolves around methodologies like zine making and performance art. Especially within her academic work as part of the Art and Performance Research Studies Master at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), she focuses on the potential of performance art as part of outreach programs in museum spaces. This master also sparked Leyla’s enthusiasm for archives and the question of how an ephemeral culture can and should be preserved. As a queer person herself who has lived in Amsterdam for a year and a half now, she wants to give back to the queer community the love and creativity she found, by facilitating a community session on archiving queer personal stories and thereby giving an impulse to preserve the collective knowledge and experiences of what it means to be a queer person today.
