I'm an arts and culture writer and poet with particular interests in Black British culture, young people and contemporary art. I like to explore and experiment with ideas about language, class and identity. My influences range from the music of Ms Dynamite to the writings of Toni Cade Bambara to Congolese music videos from the 90s. Since 2015 I have self-published three handmade poetry books, for which I independently organised and curated launch events featuring exhibitions, readings and performances. I am currently working on another book, as well as hoping to curate more exhibitions and continue exploring the art world.Locked Pro Plan feature
I'll soon be contributing a blog post to the library's website about my research into the work and career of Lubaina Himid, a significant Black British contemporary artist.
