Dorcas Creates thoughtful Diversity Matters illustrations!

We collaborated with 27 yr old British-Nigerian creative and founder of Dorcas Creates, Dorcas Magbadelo to produce thoughtful illustrations inspired Kai Lutterodt’s short film of interviews “Diversity Matters: Let’s Talk About Race” CLICK HERE to watch pt1.

The connection was established though a recommendation when we sought an illustrator to design the supporting literature for “Diversity Matters: Let’s Talk About Race” film… The rest, you could say, is herstory!

In this spontaneous video interview, Dorcas shares her thoughts on the student-staff collaboration project Diversity Matters was established out of, and why the momentum for representation of people of colour needs to continue…

Filmed and edited by Kai Lutterodt

These images are characterised loosely on some of the students and staff who shared their views on what diversity means to them, and how it is reflected in the learning environment.
