Recently, we brought back to life our mixed media installation Dirty Laundry. This features some of the most personal, autobiographical works. As part of the exhibit, visitors are encouraged to pick up a piece of cloth, write their “dirty laundry,” and wash it— encouraging them to wash away a part of themselves they consider bad. One […]
This installation is an immersive experience interconnecting personal narratives, histories, experiences, and imaginaries as a form of catharsis for the poet and the viewer. Featuring poems screen printed on canvas hanging from laundry lines, the installation will also include tailored public facing performances that explores issues around womanhood, sexual and gender violence, feminine agency, healing and reimagination.
The hanging poems tell many personal stories for the viewer to experience whilst walking through the space, a physical representation of the metaphor “hanging your dirty laundry in public”.
Museums are always good stops! The same is true in Las Vegas, where if you’re looking for a classy, vintage experience instead of a raucous poolside party during the day, there are actually some excellent options. The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is perhaps the best-known spot, but I found Centaur Art Gallery to be a dream come true. Organized almost more like a high-end shop than a show gallery, it houses sculptures, paintings, comic book art, and works from Dalí and Picasso.
When it comes to culture and the arts, you won’t find pieces more unique than the ones located in Southeast Asia.

I recently got to work with Abiola Sobo of Suss productions to put together new visuals for my poem “The Revolution”. This poem came to me at a time when I was deeply in need of affirmation
A few months ago, I scored an opportunity to travel to Rwanda as part of the International Women’s Media Foundation(IWMF) African Great Lakes reporting Fellowship. Though most of my reporting was around agriculture and climate change, I did find sometime in-between to do some fun stuff like going on a coffee tour. This is not […]
Podcasting has been quite the craze for a while. Infact, i have been recommended so many that I have actually lost count. But when I came across Not Another Book Podcast on my timeline, I was momentarily consumed with a tinge of jealousy just because it is many shades of brilliant. Hosted by self […]
I recently got the opportunity to work as one of the producers on the fifth episode of the Mothers of Invention podcast. A podcast that examines feminist solutions to climate change issues. Climate change isn’t an area I have covered very much in my past works so it has been great to learn and tackle […]
Binging on Almodóvar films and day dreaming about Jarvier Bardemwhispering sweet nothings as he lustfully peers into my soul has been my closest encounter with Spain. So, fantasising about fiery and passionate olive skin men aside, I never knew what to expect from this adventure. It started with being whisked from Barcelona airport to […]
