resilience when i read very quickly (which i do very often) “resilience” actually looks like “resilence” to me… i like the idea of resilience being about getting back to silence and it certainly goes with the discussion we at deep:black had about the whole notion of resilience this week. a place inside us that helps us coping with difficult situations, surely quietness must feel very much at home there? we’ve discovered it as our new […]

shedding light I was totally spellbound by this light installation near The Museum of London on Monday – and as I was staring & staring at the constantly changing colours this woman walked right into the scene with her impressive collection of lights, topping one light installation with another! After this rather light Monday, I was faced with a very intense week and lots of thought-provoking conversations and reflections on gendered relationships, father-daughter relationships, my […]

Peckham Boy I cycled past this poster in a side alley of Peckham High Street on Wednesday – it was early morning, the sun was out, the sky was blue and Peckham High Street almost peaceful. I had just done a detour on my way to work through Peckham Rye Common to check the bench where I left my iPhone the previous afternoon – I didn’t really believe it would still be lying there now, […]

rich mix The last 2 weeks were all about getting ready for our deep:black event at Rich Mix, riot:lyrics live. It’s been a rich & enriching time where I was continuously blown away by people’s willingness to be involved and to offer support. The event was a big success on the back of the rich collaboration between a mix of organisations, professionals and artists who were all so very passionate to make this happen and […]

lose ends In Germany we call that week between Christmas and New Year “between the years”. It certainly felt a bit like an in-between week for me, a bit fuzzy, blurry, unfocused and in limbo. I’ve enjoyed a bit of tidying up lose ends and in doing so realised how many of them are not as lose as I thought with roots that back a long time and with a desire to grow into my […]

The Crown of the East This week we found a new home for our company deep:black which has in the past been registered under Kweku’s address – with him leaving at the end of the month we struggled a bit to find a new place for our official registered address. The solution is in my direct neighbourhood and I’ve actually been a member there for 3 years now: Kingsley Hall. Set up by the inspiring Muriel & Doris […]

power balance I’m quite fascinated by the strikingly bright word “power” on this very delicate backdrop – carried by a bunch of colourful people through narrow streets besieged by Goliathic buildings. In a mediation meeting with a mother and her teenage daughter this week we spoke about human needs and about how our unfulfilled needs are at the core of conflicts. We explored their own unmet needs and I offered “power to”. They both struggled with […]

#O15 This picture is my contribution to today’s Wall Street Sit-in gone global. I took it in Pisa last week Friday shortly after running into a group of marchers that had gathered on the North side of the River Arno. Pisa fascinated me as a city that despite all the masses of tourists pilgering to the leaning tower it still seems very undisturbed and instead of surrendering to the tourists it seems to be firmly in […]

Eid, E2, EDL I’m almost a bit overwhelmed with the colours, patterns and details in this picture. I took it on Tuesday when all around me people had dressed up for Eid and there was a real sense of celebration and festivity in the air. On the eve of tomorrow’s ELD demonstration and the planned counter protest by United Against Fascism the sense of celebration seems to have made way to alertness, hyped-up-ness and fear. […]

Southwark creatures I spontaneously decided to cycle a different route home from Peckham the other day and got totally & utterly lost. To the point that when I eventually stepped down to consult my map I couldn’t even identify my location. As I was looking for street signs I spotted this rather unusually colourful tank in a – for such a vehicle – rather unusually peaceful garden in the middle of urban London. After all […]
