Rafeif Ismail

A woman with glasses smiling at the camera

Rafeif Ismail looked to poetry and music to remind her of her first home and as a way to learn her first language. A third-culture child of the Sudanese diaspora, Rafeif often explores the ideas of home and belonging in her art. Writing first began as a way for her to understand and reconcile different aspects of her identity as a Sudanese refugee in Australia. Rafeif’s writing is often a mixture of Arabic and English, She is looking for a way that will allow her to recreate the stories of her childhood in her second language.
