The Art of Engaging Communities | Raisa Mirza | TEDxHarboursidePark

Raïsa Mirza was born in Bangladesh and raised in Quebec and Ontario. A true global citizen, she has resided internationally in over seven countries but has called Tors Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador ‘home’ for over a decade. As Director of Innovation & Knowledge Management at Montreal-based One Drop Foundation, Raïsa is working to address global water and sanitation issues through the lens of art and design. A trans-disciplinary individual by nature, she’s a self-confessed “systems designer” whose work is informed by community engagement, design, innovation, and behavioural science. As a TEDxHarboursidePark 2021 Speaker, Raïsa connects to this year’s theme professionally and personally through her lived experiences driving social impact projects internationally — as an immigrant, an expat, and a passionate advocate for diversity of voice and experience in the creation of the current (and future) societal spaces we share.
