Ziedah Diata is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist, facilitator, and attorney. Since 2011, Ziedah has created participatory art experiences independently and in collaboration with cultural organizers, teachers, poets, healers and playwrights. Her work is inspired, in part, by the recurring themes that emerged in testimony during her 15 year career as an administrative law judge. Her work centers conversations around harm, repair, empathy, healing and transformation. In 2023, Ziedah left her role as Chief Administrative Law Judge for the NYS Department of State. She now explores these same themes through facilitated art-making and storytelling experiences that build and deepen relationships with her unique style of engaged, artistic inquiry.
