Say hello to ‘Travelmaking Kai’ – a little girl with a BIG dream to travel the world!

kai-and-tm

I’m starting an exciting new venture which will take me around the world… This time through the perspective of a curious 6 year old girl!

After 3yrs of procrastinating (when I finish uni, when I get paid, when I get that job – all the when’s that came and went!) I’m proud to introduce to you; “Travelmaking Kai” – a little girl with a BIG dream to travel the world! Continue reading

Diversity Matters Beyond Borders: Uganda trip to support Albinism Crisis Outreach!

There are two things I couldn’t leave the UK without doing – getting my mum’s blessing (I love it when her eyes light up when I share another travel project with her!), and voting. Yesterday I did both – my journey to Uganda can officially begin!

Another TravelmakerKai Experience… The Wizz Kid FX

When Fabio Tedde tempted us; myself, filmmaker Fred Kuwornu and Stefania Omorodion to an adventure into Kings Cross after the successful launch of Diversity Matters Awareness Week last Monday – there was little to suggest we’d run into this amazing talent gracing the piano well after midnight… Continue reading

Andy Ayo Akinwolere: “Having a different voice out there, telling a different kind of story…”

It’s interesting that when I was introduced to Andy Ayo Akinwolere just a couple of weeks ago at the Children of the Gap exhibition launch, my initial star-struck coyness was soon put to bay when we shared our mutual love for travelling… So without further hesitation, I invited Andy to be part of a panel discussion I’m organising and speaking at (along side renowned artists; James Barnor, Mariana Gordan and Paul Iwala – I’m humbled!) “Exploring Personal Growth From Cultural Experiences Through Travel Continue reading

Keeping the gyoza competition tradition: Let’s Do Lunch with world friends!

I do love a bit of healthy competition, so when I was caught in discussion between Romanian-born visual artist and writer Mariana, and Japanese-born interior designer Tamika, challenging each other to a ‘gyoza competition’ to show of their strongest culinary skills, well, I couldn’t resist but to encourage it! And the results a couple of weeks later, was an intimate gathering of world friends acting as judges for the Japanese gyoza competition cook-off… Right here in London! Continue reading

James Barnor: Ever Young in a Box of His-story

On a visit to James Barnor‘s home, I was treated to a history lesson of Ghanaian and British culture dating back to the 50’s when the 86yr “Ever Young” photographer began his career and became Gold Coast’s first newspaper photographer and later on the first to introduce colour processing to newly Independent Ghana.  Continue reading

Taking to the streets of London with @NexHypeTV!

It’s been a super slow start to the year, and I guess with this being my first post of 2016 I have to extend a Happy New Year to you all!! (Sorry for the tardiness -I’ll fill you in on the dramas, losses and gains in another post!)

Despite the slow start to the year, I’m super excited about the whirlwind pace I’m currently on since teaming up with @NexHypeTV! Continue reading

Istanbul Biennial: A journey through Saltwater…

This year’s Istanbul Biennial theme “Saltwater” suggests restorative properties; cleansing, nourishing and “healing” as the curator, Christov-Bakargiev, has indicated.

And it was the latter of these properties that resonated with me when I escaped the tourist sites (which ironically, I became a sight for the locals Continue reading
