Speaker: Abira Hussein

Series: #CityLis After Hours

Abira will discuss how the HoloLens experience and photogrammetry workshops inspired Somali communities to digitise their own heritage objects and share their personal stories. They will reflect on the successes and challenges of the project and the use of immersive technologies to inspire new narratives and creative interpretations of Somali culture and heritage.

Abira Hussein is an independent researcher and curator specialising in Somali heritage, digital archives, migration, and health. In recent years she has worked with the British Museum, British Library, London Metropolitan Archives, Refugee Council Archive and Somali Week Festival, to deliver a number of projects and workshops engaging with the Somali Community.
