Mohammed says… 

I graduated with a BA in Social Anthropology in 2018. I’m a freelance artist, writer and zine maker and have a background in youth work and the culture sector. In the past year I’ve participated in two other Create Jobs programmes, gaining experience with events production through the Arts Festival Leaders course at Tate Modern, as well as an insight into the world of museums through the STEP into the Smithsonian programme with Smithsonian Institute, LLDC and Create Jobs. These placements have given me a passion to work in museums and galleries. As of late, I have also been refining my graphic design skills to launch my own clothing line which I was inspired to do after a successful garment campaign with Everpress.

I’m looking forward to learning how to plan and deliver exhibitions and schools workshops with UCL Culture as a way of making research and museums more accessible. I’m also interested in gaining a background in promotion, improving my writing and digital design skills with FFL as well as gaining a deeper understanding of how the new developments in east London will affect the community.
