Zina Allen (she/they/Z) is a Corvallis artist and poet. Their art is an outlet and a way for them to create while living with disabilities. They are inspired by the concept of social symbiotic relationships and the idea that equity is possible. Their work joins layers and different ways of seeing things to represent the complexities they observe not just in their own life and the world around them. They work as an architect, designer and wellness and equity ambassador at the Disability Equity Center. Zina recently received the Paul Harris Fellow award from the National Rotarians for their multiple volunteer efforts.
