Portrait of Soreti Kadir

Soreti Kadir

Soreti, known also as Hawiine, is a female, Oromo, multidisciplinary creative whose expression includes performance poetry, writing, music, organising and entrepreneurship.

Soreti’s artistic and leadership journey has seen her speak, perform, collaborate and lead in a variety of contexts across Australia and the wider world, from the international aid and development industry to grassroots community organising, festivals, conferences, panels and numerous poetry features.

She is passionate about her people, about the global indigenous experience, about seeing the continent of her birth embrace itself, about increasing her own and our awareness on the racial and gender dynamics that hold us back, and about every person on this earth knowing of and living through their inherent greatness.
