I'm so lucky to work with such talented women. Shatila Studio is a place with tremendous creative energy.
Meike is Co-Director of Shatila Studio. She is also responsible for Sales and Marketing.
Meike studied Arabic at SOAS in London. Before joining Shatila Studio she run her own publishing company, Peirene Press, in the UK for ten years. She first came to Lebanon in 2016 to work with a group of writers to create ‘Shatila Stories’. Two years later the core team of Shatila Studio approached her to help them transform their NGO funded workshop into a self-sustaining social enterprise – and she leapt at the chance. For her this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage her entrepreneurial skills and help build a company that offers livelihoods for over a hundred women.
