She is the co-director of SPARCK, Space for Pan-African Research, Creation and Knowledge and the producer of the podcast series Artists on Africa.
In 2016 she received a research grant from Atelier Mondial and moved from Cape Town to Basel, where she continues to work as curator, facilitator and cultural practitioner, regularly in collaboration with Kaserne Basel and the FHNW (Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz), as well as faculty member of the MA in Public Spheres (MAPS) programme at the édhéa (école de design et haute école d’art) in Sierre.
