So here is it the finished edit of ‘Where Are They From?’ by Suki Mok and myself – hope you enjoy it!
Charting the journeys of four London-based artists from East Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and India we explore the stories behind each journey, life in their hometowns and if their backgrounds have inspired creative work. Featuring guest interviewees: composer/Bhangra pioneer Kuljit Bhamra, award-winning novelist/filmmaker Xiaolu Guo, educator/bassist Svetlana Vassileva and Cameroonian-British artist Shiri Achu.
