When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
Dr. Meghna Bhat is a renowned feminist scholar, consultant, narrative criminologist, change-maker, and storyteller. Through research, writing, consultancy, and trainings, she tirelessly works towards a better, brighter, and hopeful world for our current and future generations.
Using storytelling, research, film-making, and media representations, Dr. Bhat envisions fostering social narrative and culture change by building inclusive, accessible, and culturally responsive community spaces free from violence, abuse, harassment, and oppression. Due to popular demand, she has also started providing one-to-one mentoring and consulting coaching services.
Dr. Bhat was recently recognized as one of the 45 recipients of the 2022 SEEDING CREATIVITY GRANT for individual artists offered by the City of Sacramento Office of Arts and Culture. Her project will be using storytelling within South Asian immigrant communities.
Because justice and healing look different for everyone, it's imperative to provide all options to those affected by violence and support them in their healing process.
