Diana Malaj is one of the three funders of the activist group ATA which priority is the fights for the use of cultural spaces in their city, the only places where they have a possibility to gather. Diana is a law graduate and an activist focusing on the right of the accessibility to culture in the periphery, with a specific focus on the role of women in art and literature. She is interested in what she calls “the terrain of action and reflection” which defines the human being as a subject of law and right and her/his resistance as a creative act. Through activism with the ATA group, she has been able to explore various disciplines such as anthropology, journalism, art, literature and law, all of which are ways of re-conceiving the dimension of social movements and activism. http://www.nyje.al/
