New Orleans Entertainment Coalition is pleased to announce that Nadia Alhashimi has been selected to serve our new Executive Director.
A magna cum laude graduate and Fulbright scholar, Alhashimi is a first-generation American who comes from a thousand-year-old line of public servants and diplomats with a history of negotiating sustainable solutions for their communities. Born in Dubai, and reared between London and rural Louisiana, Alhashimi has dedicated much of her career to maximizing the cultural, historic and economic roles of the arts while also honoring and preserving the cultural history of her Arab heritage.
Her scholarly work has included exploration of the economic impact of women in the arts and culture, the representation of women in media, and new trends in media and technology in the next generation. The arts, she says, hold the power to bring people together.
