Fozia Ismail

Fozia runs a Somali supper club called Arawelo Eats. Fozia has 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 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 in Observer Food Magazine, BBC Radio 4 Food Programme, Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookery Ox Tales podcast, Food 52,Crumbs Magazine, Vice Munchies and Bristol 24/7. She is currently working on commission from the Colonial Countryside Project unpicking some of the colonial legacies of food & empire at Dyrham Park, National Trust.
