Saba has more than 15 years of experience in education, writing and training. She works with alternative pedagogies and artistic research practices to promote social change, inclusion and peacebuilding. She has a master’s degree in Gender Studies from Utrecht University and works with various educational and media institutions, and frequently gives talks.
