About me

Swanzy works as an independent curator, motivational speaker and creative collaborator. Through various DIY projects she investigates and explores relational aesthetics, intersectional feminism and storytelling of marginalized voices. As a strong believer of self-expression via creative arts, Swanzy is able to channel that through ROADFEMME- a newspaper zine in which she collates raw and honest creative pieces from womxn all over the world. She also feeds that ethos into LONDON POSITIVE - her Youth organisation and mentoring schemes. All her curatorial and creative endeavors are often in raw-spaces and highlight the connection between power structures, sexuality, identity and community. She lives in London with a large collection of wigs and hair dye.
