Chipo Kureya is an actor working on stage and screen. She is best known for playing Kambu in Netflix series African Queens: Njinga, and also for her theatre work including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Winnie Mandela in a touring production of Free Mandela.
Chipo set up Bantu Creatives as an opportunity to not only act well in a given story but to be a part of creating the full narrative.
“Too often we have been told what our story was, is, or will be, but now we can set the stage and shift the focus.”
As a thought leader, Chipo works closely with the #FreeNehanda Project, an organisation that is implementing the repatriation of African remains and sacred artefacts from the British Museum to their rightful places of origin.
Chipo is a founding member of Black In The Open, a company determined to hold a mirror up to organisations and unravel the systemic racism that is rampant in the UK.
Chipo is based in Bedford and offers different workshops and sessions, both online and in person. Find out more here.
