Tariq will be discussing forced migration and policy on refugee resettlement and will be sharing his stunning documentary photography.  
 
Following is Tariq’s biography and information about his impressive background.
 
Born in Mogadishu, Somalia, Tariq Tarey has been using photography as a socially conscious tool to document the lives of the dispossessed and marginalized. Since 2001, he has chronicled the lives of Somali refugees who live in cities like Columbus, Minneapolis as well as in African refugee camps.  Tarey’s photographs have been published in numerous newspapers and journals. His work has also appeared twice in shows at the Northwood Art Space at The Ohio State University and at the MPX gallery in Clintonville. In 2006, Tarey was honored with the South Side Settlement House’s Arts Freedom Award and the Ohio Art Council’s Individual Artist Award. Tarey was given an Individual Artist Award by the Greater Columbus Arts Council in 2008.
 
Tarey is currently the Director of Refugee Social Services at Jewish Family Services in Columbus, Ohio. He serves on Ohio’s New African Immigrants Commission and the Franklin County Board of Commissioner’s New American Advisory Council. Tarey is also a documentary photographer, skilled in both still photography and filmmaking. In 2006, Tarey’s photographic exhibit, Forlorn in Ohio, which documented the plight of Somali refugees, appeared at the Kiaca Gallery and Wright State University. Tarey’s exhibition “Bhutanese-Nepali Neighbors” was on display at the Ohio History Connection throughout 2017 and was nominated for the Community Arts Partnership Award by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. In 2018 “Bhutanese-Nepali Neighbors” exhibit won the Ohio Museums Associations best of show.  Several of his images now belong to the permanent collection of the Columbus Museum of Art. Tarey directed “Women, War and Resettlement: Nasro’s Journey,” which was aired on WOSU Public Television in 2012. Moreover, Tarey’s film, “The Darien Gap,” was shown in the 2nd United States Conference on African Immigrant and Refugee Health. Among his honors are the South Side Settlement House’s Arts Freedom Award in 2006 and the Ohio Art Council’s Individual Artist Award in 2008, and in that same year Tarey won the Greater Columbus Art Council’s Individual Artist Award.  Currently, Tarey is working on a book project documenting representative refugee populations in Central Ohio.
