About me
Hello! I'm Ayumi, a facilitator based in London. I design inclusive workshops and digital installations, and have lots of experience supporting young under-represented creatives to access the creative and digital industries. I've worked with people like A New Direction, Somerset House, The Roundhouse, Spitalfields Music, Sound Connections, and through Create Jobs ran projects with It's Nice That, GreyLondon, Wieden+Kennedy, Worldwide FM, Made by Many, D&AD and other digital consultancies. I am interested in all things digital, diversity, culture and education so get in touch if you'd like to work together!
