A nomadic international, Heather Hill moved to DC in 2013, claiming the US capital as her eighth capital city to call home. As a writer, artist, and human rights activist, she spends the time she is not in theaters, at her day-job, or travelling by serving on the leadership of the United Nations Association for the National Capitol Area. Heather particularly loves the intersection of art, civic engagement, and activism, and enjoys writing and speaking on the topics. She previously covered performing arts in DC with the Maryland Theatre Guide.
Sulayman Al Bassam is returning to the Kennedy Center next week for the first time since 2009.
