Decolonising Our Minds. Producer and Co-Founder (2015)

I co-founded Decolonising Our Minds, a society that began at SOAS to deconstruct the legacies of colonialism and its persistence in everyday modern society. 

I co-produced over 50 events with Decolonising Our Minds, including talks, panels, spoken word and poetry nights to create spaces to have conversations on these topics, which weren't extensively covered in the SOAS curriculum.

Over two years, we hosted international speakers including Teju Cole, Def Jam poet Shihan, director Cecile Emeke, as well as Heems and The Last Poets. 

Collaborators included Rich Mix, ArtsAdmin, Bush Hall, Pluto Books, Islamic Human Rights Commission and more. Our events also attracted attention from national media such as Fader, Dazed and the Guardian
