Fozia Ismail

Fozia runs a Somali supper club called Arawelo Eats. The supper club is 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. In 2019 she was one of OFM’s Top 50.

This has also involved her creating workshops for Keep It Complex feminist art collective in London, a range of art/museum galleries including Serpentine Gallery, Jerwood Project Space and Museum of London. Fozia has been featured on Observer Food Magazine, BBC Radio 4 Food Programme, Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery Ox Tales podcast, Food 52, Crumbs Magazine, Vice Munchies & Bristol 24/7. By day Fozia is a Research Coordinator for University of West England and in June 2019 was selected as a City Fellow for the Arnolfini – Centre for Contemporary Arts in Bristol on her project Camel Meat and Tapes.
