Social marketing and public relations
I currently work for music producers and app makers Coldcut, founders of Ninja Tune Records. I help design their civic engagement projects, cultural activism and social media presence. We are currently working on the Free West Papua campaign.
Dream Catchers is a new project I am developing with Young Urban Arts Foundation that aims to bring well known musicians, visual artists and videographers to work collaboratively with the victims of Grenfell and other local creative talents who live in tower blocks in London.
Cambridge Refugee Campaign
This project is a group of students from the University of Cambridge who care passionately about refugee education and hopes to respond to the refugee crisis in a way that is appropriate for them; and so organize the student community to systematically raise money for refugee scholarships at Cambridge for graduate and undergraduate level.
