TAMARA JAFAR / cultfever.com



Tamara Jafar is a musician and an experimental artist whose recent work explores the role of cultural figures and performance techniques in creating peaceful urban spaces and processes. Currently, she is designing strategies to equip nonviolent civilians with tools to confront violence and build resiliency, morale, and more robust communication networks in times of conflict.

Jafar is half of the band CULTFEVER—a Brooklyn-based rock project that has collaborated and performed with artists such as Cibo Matto and A$AP Rocky. At the Harvard Graduate School of Design, she is exploring how to marshal new facets of virtual and spatial design to overcome human-to-human connection.

Along with her interest in music, Jafar’s early career involved working with habeas corpus litigators at the Center for Constitutional Rights and implementing third-country resettlement programs for detainees at Guantánamo Bay. She has also collaborated on projects with Stanford’s Center for International Conflict and Negotiation as well as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
