Tazrae Jemeli is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and herbalist having 9 years of professional, artistic, and communal experience in navigating this country’s justice system and crafting tools of preservation for their communities’ livelihood. Having developed their professional roots in Minneapolis/St. Paul with various Theatre and Arts education organizations such as Penumbra Theatre, Climb Theater, Pangea World Theater, and Pillsbury House and Theatre, they are excited to grow as a teaching artist as well as interpersonally with the newfound community in Chicago in providing avenues of abolition for youth impacted by these systems.
