Hello! I’m Noor Sayadi. I am a youth facilitator, an artist and a freelance commercial videographer, and now I’m Antyx’s new administrator! I graduated from ACAD in 2014, and since then have been working with non-profits, especially within the arts and immigrant sectors. I love traveling and exploring new places, and in my free time, I dance, sing and play Dungeons and Dragons (or video games when there’s time), and will talk ad nauseum about various other nerdy things if prompted.
What would you most like to learn and why?
I would love to learn a couple new languages. I already speak Arabic and English, but I’ve been dabbling in Turkish, Japanese and French for a while.
If you could have any pet what would it be and why?
Realistically, a cat. Ideally, a chimera.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why?
Moss green. Moss is good.
What’s your favourite memory from childhood?
Going to IKEA with my family! To little me, Ikea was like a strange and fantastical cross between a playground, a maze and a huge mansion with far too many chairs. I had a lot of fun running around through all the rooms and looking at how everything was set up. It definitely grew in me a love for interior design… and Swedish meatballs, of course.
What do you like most about working with Antyx Community Arts?
Seeing our youth’s progress over time and seeing how they develop and grow as artists and people. Seeing them come out of their shells and explore who they are with their art is the most rewarding part of being here. I’ve learned so much from every single youth I’ve worked with and I look forward to seeing them flourish and take on the world!
