Really excited to be leading on a brand new programme by Kayd after receiving a 2 year grant by Arts Council of England’s Elevate fund to create excellent art and partnerships with other Somali organisations in both London and other cities in England.
We are currently hiring for someone to join our small team in this new project; if you are passionate about Somali arts, culture and heritage – get more information and apply here.
My short story collection The Story of Us is now on sale in interKontinental which has been described as “the agency for African literature in German-speaking countries. They represent and promote writers from the continent and the diaspora”. They also run the annual African Book Festival Berlin. Very exciting!
Join us at the launch to celebrate one year of hard work creating another spectacular highlight of the Somali social calender: the 11th annual Somali Week Festival! Tickets for all the events can be found here. Programme booklet is also available here.
Very excited to attend my first event in Glasgow for their Black History Month programme on Saturday 5th October 11am onwards. It’s a free event so do join us if you are around! For more events that I’m doing during BHM UK, do check out my upcoming events page.
