Fozia Ismail

Fozia runs a Somali supper club called Arawelo Eats. They have used the supper club as a platform for thinking, researching and exploring racism and British identity via the medium of food – particularly in response to Brexit. Fozia has written a paper about this for the Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery 2017, which was published in July 2018.

This has also involved them creating workshops for Keep It Complex feminist art collective in London, the Pumphouse Gallery Summer Pavilion and the Museum of London, as well doing panel talks at Studio RCA (Royal College of Art) and a-n (the largest artists’ membership organisation in the UK).

Fozia has been featured on BBC Radio 4 Food Programme, Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery Ox Tales podcast, Food 52, Crumbs Magazine, Vice Munchies and Bristol 24/7. They are currently working on commission from the Serpentine Gallery and will be featured as part of their Radical Kitchen programme as part of the 2018 Summer Pavilion.
