My name is Pelumi Adejumo (1998), I am a first-year student of Creative Writing. I initiated the SCP (Student Curatorial Platform), a platform for students who are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration and who set out to answer the question of how ArtEZ can become more inclusive.
In my work, I often try to find a certain lightheartedness, because it contrasts with the drama of the way I experience things. My origins play a role in the way I am viewed and treated to such an extent that I feel obliged to deal with it, even in my work. I can deal with it either by avoiding it or by discussing it, as I do in my contribution to the podcast.
