Over the last few days, we've been shining a spotlight on each of the artists and creative leaders taking part in our Abundance programme.
Delivered in partnership with Sampad with support from Voluntary Arts Coventry, Abundance will bring the cohort together for a series of workshops, supporting them to develop their skills and pursue ideas for individual projects in the lead-up to our Carnival of Lights later this year.
Today, we're introducing Kauser Husain, a creative writer and Social Science researcher. Find out more about her in her guest blog below, or head to our YouTube channel to meet a few of our other Abundance artists.
My day job involves working at Coventry University within Research Services where I support the day-to-day delivery of funded projects within the Institute of Creative Cultures. I am also an active member of the university’s BME staff Network where I have designed and launched the network website and assist in organising monthly events and meetings.
I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature and recently completed a Master’s degree in Popular Culture, which explored how media and culture is produced and consumed. My research area particularly focused on the representation of British Asian youth subcultures in literature, film, television, music and fashion.
