HAIR, HERITAGE + OTHER GOOD STUFF


I’m here for the zines. Ok!
I’m here for your projects. Ok!
I want to get in touch. Ok!
Hello! I’m Korantema.
I’m a cultural producer, curator and zine maker born and raised in east London. You can usually find me making zines, talking about hair or working with young people and local communities.
My work focuses on home, identity, justice and storytelling and I love to highlight the extraordinary in things that are often overlooked. I work with oral history and especially enjoy celebrating the heritage of the African and Caribbean diaspora.
I curate a creative project called Black Hair Stories and have freelanced with museums and galleries across the UK. My work has been featured in gal-dem, Vice and ITV News. I currently work as Community Manager at the social justice charity, Arts Emergency.
