Ra’eesah is a multifaceted creative using the mediums of theatre, film, music and spoken word to tell stories, bring people together and effect positive change. She has performed as an actor and singer at the Bush Theatre and has also acquired skills in videography and video editing.
She has produced projects such as The Self Expression Sessions, a series of spoken word poetry workshops open to people of all ages and abilities, to increase accessibility to the arts and build community through creativity and culture. Ra’eesah particularly focuses on increasing participatory opportunities within West London as this area is largely underserved at present.
As a facilitator and youth advisory board/forum member, she has also worked with cultural and creative organisations such as A New Direction, The Old Vic and the Roundhouse, to name a few.
