About me
Connecting, creating, documenting and exploring are my ikigai. My experience orbits one-to-one mentoring, project planning and proposing, public speaking, and transmuting the ethereal to the material. Keenly interested in art and creative direction, copywriting, content creation, marketing & social media, design, and speaking plus listening. My hobbies include: embracing radical softness, indulging in intimacy, and having open, deep and meaningful conversations. I am known to be multidisciplinary. Obsessed with all things cultural. Let's collaborate, connect or cultivate some culture together: jameldalatise@gmail.com

  • One Hundred and Eleven Stories & Counting
    One Hundred and Eleven Stories & CountingOne Hundred and Eleven Stories & Counting – there were about seventy-five attendees, around sixty sheets of recycled cotton rag paper, and over a dozen pens placed besides clips resting on a plinth. The installation displayed a carefully curated collection of Stories that featured anonymous, handwritten texts in over five languages. The stories are about times when they have loved, lost or learnt—or at least that's what I request when "would you share a story with me" is too broad.

  • Stories for People Journal
    Stories for People JournalStarted collecting anonymous, handwritten 'Stories' in March; it began as part of a piece I devised for 'Satellites', a performance for the Barbican's Highwalks, during their OpenFest—I wanted to bring a new commerce to The City, and thought the exchange of stories would be cool. After the performance, I walked away with 30 or so stories that were funny, confessional, heartfelt, about love, loss, lessons, friendship and family. Months later I’ve collected 100s of these stories. Exhibited them

  • Discomfort - A 21st Century Experience
    Discomfort - A 21st Century ExperienceFatima was an inspiration for me this summer (Summer 2018). She was at once both private and uniquely talkative; she spoke openly about her trials and tribulations as a black female model working in both British and European settings. I felt that she enjoyed sharing her stories with someone new to her world, unbiased and unversed in the intricacies and difficulties of being a freelance model. In getting to know her and speaking to her about her work, she opened up to me about her experiences wh
