FACILITATION & SPEAKING
Workshops and Trainings
I love designing and delivering participatory workshops on a diversity of topics (ranging from playwriting, collaborative practice and interactive media design, to campaigning and community organising), both online or in-person.
As a writer / artist, I have designed and facilitated creative workshops for organisations including: Somerset House, TOMS, Royal Court Theatre, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Oxford Playhouse, Common Ground, Coney, Now Play This Festival, Modern Art Oxford and the African Gifted Foundation.
As an activist-facilitator, I have run workshops and trainings for: Restless Development, Youth Stop AIDS, Campaign Bootcamp, UNICEF and the International Citizen Service. I am a training associate with the Good Night Out Campaign, and was a Changemaker / Youth Worker for The Advocacy Academy.
I have received specialist facilitation and safeguarding training from The Advocacy Academy, Good Night Out Campaign, Citizens UK, Restless Development and the Royal Court Theatre.
Events and Hosting
I also enjoy hosting events and panel discussions, as well as giving talks on various topics.
I've hosted events, interviews, film screenings, parties and panels for a range of venues & festivals, including: BFI Flare, Be'kech Berlin, Disruption Network Lab, Radical Networks Festival, Restless Development, Rich Mix, Impact Hub, The Africa Centre and more.
I've also given talks and lectures for universities such as UCL, University of Cambridge, Central School of Speech and Drama, University of Bristol and Occidental College (USA).
I was a co-host for season 1 of the podcast 'Tanti Table' - a podcast interviewing artists and activists of colour in Berlin (find us on spotify!). I also co-hosted 'A History of Everyone Else', an online events series exploring lesser-known historical moments from the British Empire. I was selected to be a member of the first 'Sound Up' Spotify bootcamp, where I developed my hosting and podcast production skills.
Before I wrote plays, I wrote and performed poetry. I headlined and performed at various poetry events in Berlin, as well as being selected to take part in the Roundhouse London poetry collective weekender.
