Rasha Tayeh

Rasha Tayeh is a Palestinian nutritionist, herbalist, artist, and independent researcher exploring food sovereignty. She is the founder and director of Beit e’Shai (‘House of Tea’ in Arabic), an online apothecary and pop-up teahouse that preserves Palestinian herbalism and traditional Arabic medicine practices. In her research and art practice, she is interested in the space where art and health intersect, exploring food history and anthropology. Her work usually takes a documentarian approach combining photography, film, sound, and installation practices. She draws on themes around health, culture, identity, feminism, spirituality, and people’s connection (or disconnection) to nature.
