5 badass women of colour set to make waves in 2018

2017 has been the year of self-exploration, acceptance and self-love (I’m not talking hot baths and inhaling donuts on the sofa). To compliment this, mainstream art and culture spaces have been celebrating dual identities. To see exhibitions such as the Beauty of Being British Asian in East London, Illuminating India at the Science Museum and Ayurvedic Man:Encounters with Indian Medicine at the Wellcome Collection unfold throughout the year, has made my 2017 feel magical.
Leyya and Roshni are the founders of The Other Box, an award-winning platform for increasing diversity in the creative industries. Through events, workshops and a growing network of bad-ass creatives, The Other Box celebrates people of colour and other minority backgrounds. Watch this space for 2018.
