Head of Engagement, Museum of London

What is your ‘Good Fight’?

I’m on a mission to decolonise our national story by empowering BAME museum workers and audiences. Our museums are not keeping up with our changing population and super-serving a narrow part of society. As public cultural spaces are squeezed our role is increasingly important and our potential to further social justice is huge. I’m part of a network of museum activists, Museum Detox. We’re comprised of over 100 Black, Asian and minority ethnic museum workers from museums around the UK. We’ve been joining forces over the last 3 years and slowly but surely we’re making a difference.

What do you need to realise your goal?

We need connections beyond the museum world and critical friends to challenge us and keep us sharp.
