Karmel Sabri (b. 1995) is a socially engaged Palestinian artist, organizer, and designer. She is a current candidate of the Disarming Design masters program at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.  Her work with installation, print making, parties, and public interventions seek to beg the endless question of Palestine in an alternative lens which celebrates culture and fosters meaningful discussion.

Sabri explores the concept of celebration as a method of resistance through her organization, Dear Gaza 501(c)(3), which from 2015-2019 curated programing, most notably through an annual block party, which provided a platform for artists to engage in a public celebration of Palestinian culture in a context that was never imagined before. Her programing has been supported by The Walker Art Center, The Minnesota state Arts Board, and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. Sabri was a resident at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis from 2019-2020.
