Hannaa Hamdache

Hannaa Hamdache is an Artist and Curator based in Leeds, UK.

Born in 1993, of mixed English and Algerian heritage, Hannaa Hamdache holds a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and Art History from Kingston University London and an MLitt in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) from the Glasgow School of Art.

She has been active within the art world under various guises, both as an artist and curator on multiple projects. She works to make the arts open for all through the use of humour and education. Her practice explores the idea of play: playing with context, the exhibition and the everyday.

She is a member of the Creative Thinktank at UK New Artists.
