Hello! I am passionate about sparking connections and new conversations between people, be it through festivals, radio shows, or writing. Prior to joining the wonderful team at b-side, I was the British Council’s Head of Arts East Africa, and subsequently Director of Arts Sub-Saharan Africa.
I co-founded and directed 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust, a centre for contemporary art in Kampala, Uganda; and KLA ART, Kampala’s biennial public art festival.
I received an MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Edinburgh College of Art and I am currently undertaking a practice-based PhD in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. The PhD is exploring queer abstraction in Kenya and Uganda’s art scenes.
