Using protest images from women’s marches and protests in Karachi and Houston (offered to me by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast), I created a wall that also contained live testimonies offered by Houston women.
Voices Breaking Boundaries' original office was in [Sarwar’s] kitchen, but later she set up shop in a tiny donated space. If she stood up, she knocked her head. But she didn't spend much time in the office anyway. Wherever she went, she found a community partners. “Crossing borders with art.”

Ongoing & Additional Projects
I am an author and speaker, an artist, and a community and cultural activist.
If I can use my talents and passions to inspire you or your network to push boundaries and become involved in our communities, please connect with me. I am open to schedule readings, workshops, courses or multimedia installations.Universities and non-profit organizations based in Texas can apply for Texas Commission on the Arts grants to fund Sarwar’s workshops, readings and/or installations since she serves on the Texas Touring Roster.
