Who is William Brown? – Art Workshop

National Maritime Museum Greenwich

24th February 2019

Anyone would assume the name ‘William Brown’ was a male but in actual fact, it was a she and she was the first black female sailor to join the royal navy.

Unfortunately, no imagery of William Brown was ever discovered and very little information is known about her. This workshop was in celebration of a great black supershero who not only broke down barriers but explored identity. Children were given the chance to let their imagination run wild and try to vision what William brown may have actually looked like.

A face of An African – International Slavery Remembrance Day

National Maritime Museum Greenwich

23 August 2018

For International Slavery Remembrance Day we wanted to take a contemporary approach in which kids would take part in. Through the help of the Maritime Museum archives, we managed to dig up unseen images of African women during the transatlantic slave trade and transform them as supershero masks to celebrate their bravery, courage as well as resistance. We wanted the children to re-write history through art by giving them control of how they saw these particular women.


‘Let Her Talk’

SOAS University

10th August 2018

With the recent stories of knife crime in the capital, we wanted to highlight this through role-play. We collaborated with Consented Magazine and SOAS University to host a workshop which looked at this issue from a female perspective. Too often does the media overlook how knife crime affects young women and the after effects it has on them. ‘Let Her Talk’ allowed young women to voice their anger, sadness, and opinion on how knife crime affects them by acting out real-life scenarios.
