PROJECTS

Community engagement is central to my work. The isiZulu saying ubuntu ngumuntu ngabantu (a person is a person through people) has always been close to my heart. While others may see community engagement as a way of giving back, the truth for me is I'm the one who has a lot to gain when I work with my people.

ZIFOZONKE

aka Self Care Things

Zifozonke is a happening for artists operating from the margins, which asks how we can practice in ways that pull away from restrictive models and opens up possibilities for interdisciplinary and intergenerational conversation.

ART BEYOND THE STREETS

with The Black Power Station

Xolile Madinda who is also the founder of Fingo Festival and The Black Power Station asked me to work with him on this project Art Beyond the Streets. The idea was to provide materials for people from the Joza township in Makhanda to be able to make collective paintings during the National Arts Festival in 2018.

THE BLACK HOUSE

Peckham Platform

The Black House was borne in collaboration with Ebun Sodipo and Kefiloe Siwisa. We wanted to share space in the midst of the rampant gentrification of Peckham, South London - a historically black area. The project was also produced as a response to the alienation we felt as young black people in institutions of higher learning.
