He is an advisor on climate justice to leading scientists at the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter, and on decolonisation to The Box in Plymouth. He is co-chair of the Black Atlantic Innovation Network at UCL’s Sarah Parker Remond Centre for the Study of Racism and Racialisation, and was co-curator of the recent Serpentine public programmes, Sensing the Planet (2021) and Equilibrium (2022). His 2016 feature documentary, The Confession, was described in the The Guardian as “a documentary of great clarity and gravitas” and in Sight and Sound as “as interrogation of the very nature of truth telling, freedom and responsibility”.
