NLWA – REUSE & RECYCLING CENTRES
Recycling items which aren’t collected by your local council can be a bind, but North London residents have been given easy access to various RRCs that anything from electricals to plasterboard can be taken to. Here’s a promo I made for NLWA to raise awareness of their schemes:
In collaboration with The Bone Ensemble theatre company, Birmingham and the Amankwatia Cooperative Society Cocoa Farmers in Ghana, I curated and edited this short film about the process of cocoa farming. This was shown as part of the pop-up arts festival ChocFest, held beside Cadbury’s factory in Bournville Village, bringing communities together in the name of chocolate!
THE SCHOOL OF HOPE
Walking in someone else’s shoes – how often do we do it? The School of Hope is a digital, multi-artform project for young creatives aged 13-25. It is based on the theme of empathy and the project delves into what makes us care about other people, especially those who we might perceive as very different from us.

As the pandemic continues to affect our lives, schools have adopted new ways of inviting prospective students and their parents to pay them a visit.

MIXED RACE PORTRAITS – SERIES 2 EPISODE 2
Ever had the feeling that once you meet a person of a particular race, you’ve met them all? In Series 2 I want to explode this myth. In Episode 1, Andrea spoke about her Caribbean-English background and how she considers herself mixed race. Here Ojaih gives a very different account of being Caribbean and English and what it means for her identity.
