Black Memory. African Futures. We came to build.


About Us

Putting our history in display cases and white spaces misses the point. Its time we controlled our own image - past and present. 

We work with 'the archive' because we want to challenge the view of what is probable and what is possible - to change our narrative. History can heal.

We use a range of creative tools in our work, reaching across formats and across the senses. When we face the past we understand the present. When we understand the present we shape our future. 





We sample the archive. We sample what we deem appropriate and co-create spaces which influence future ways of being.   


Our aim is to sustain and share our collective memory. To do this we consider:

What is the heritage?  Why is it important? What is the context? How can the memory be sustained?




Culture is philosophy as lived and celebrated in a society.
