She was commissioned to facilitate a Black hair and Heritage art workshop, funded by LW Borough of Culture aimed at young Black girls and provided a space to explore cultural identity whilst creating art in their image. In 2020 she created a BLM protest poster. This was shared widely across the UK with many E17 businesses and homes still proudly displaying the poster, and spotted on Sky News and part of a Lambeth Council exhibition.
Kim will use the space to hold an exhibition of her Barbershop project and cultural prints. She will be working on some pieces during this time, seeing it as a great opportunity to get feedback and engage with the local community.
