- AgudasDefinition: Aguda is the name given to the descendents of freed Afro-Brazilian slaves who left Brazil and settled in/returned to Nigeria. Regions with significant Aguda populations include Lagos, Abeokuta, Ibadan, Calabar and Port Harcourt. The Agudas in Lagos built and designed the Brazilian Quarters which still stands today (although it risks being demolished and is not in good condition). The buildings resemble the baroque style that was popular in Brazil in the 19th century.
- New Creatives North - BBC Arts x Arts Council EnglandI have been commissioned to direct a short 5 minute film on an idea I pitched which is on the theme of afro hair as well as the sense of community and intimacy it brings upon Black women as well as the idea that the process of doing afro hair is like a sacred ritual that has been performed for thousands of years and is still the same. Afro Hair Rituals can be viewed on BBC iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p08gj953/new-creatives-afro-hair-rituals
- ROOT-ed Zine x Walker Art Gallery | Black History TourI illustrated this map that I used to give a tour with Fauziya Johnson as ROOT-ed Zine of the walker art gallery in Liverpool. The tour highlighted the gallery's Black art as well as art and design connected to the slave trade. This history is incredibly important especially considering Liverpool's significant involvement and gain from the transatlantic slave trade.
