Sheewa Salehi, Events + Content Manager of Space15Twenty, Los Angeles
Sheewa Salehi is the Events and Content Manager for Urban Outfitters’ Space15Twenty in Los Angeles. She is first generation Iranian, born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. In her youth, she spent much of her time involved in academic programs and extracurricular activities under strict curfews. After high school her parents encouraged her to pursue a career in the medical field. Although she was unsure of what she wanted to do in life, she knew the medical field was not how she wanted to make a living. She moved to LA in 2007 to start a new journey.
Sheewa’s ambition, curiosity, and dedication has led her to her role at Space15Twenty where she works with collaborators to conceptualize and execute events, installations, and content pieces that stimulate and support the surrounding communities. If the opportunity arose, she would love to collaborate with VICE to curate an event celebrating the beauty of Middle-Eastern culture.
