Sahara Jones is a Graphic Designer born and raised in London, who loves to create typographic posters. She uses design and type to comment on what’s happening around her. "The artwork is a postcard from her community (South London) but also a postcard to South London with love. “The Ends” is a term of endearmen a well known phrase people from her community connect with. Ackowledging her Caribbean heritage and community, she uses warmer tones references the yaad, another term for home."
Kumbirai Makumbe is a Zimbabwean new-media artist based in London. Using sculpture, audio-visual digital installation, image and video, they continually interrogate the multi-dimensionality of blackness, the trans experience, and ‘inbetweenness’.

Sol Rei is a London based artist of Nigerian heritage; their work is about capturing moments as they happen, showcasing the life of the African and Caribbean diaspora. "The idea behind this piece of work is the act of being held.

The message is that together, we can overcome and work through anything."
