Lin Kam Art Carni Crew

30 August 2020

Meet the team


Amelia

I believe music and dance are one of the most powerful things we can do as humans, and have written about this a lot in my own journalism. I have a zest for nightlife and music that we’re blessed with from London’s cultural diversity. I have also been fortunate to speak in primary schools, teaching about the importance of utilising your own creativity in all aspects of education. I love to write, I love DJing and I love gardening and looking after my many plants! I believe there’s a lot more to be seen within London nightlife, and I hope to be a part in its developments

Azarra

I’m an artist, I mostly paint, make mixed media collages and do large scale street art murals. The art I create are like pages of my diary and help me figure out life. By day I work as a Presentation designer (yep, I spend most my day on powerpoint lol) but I make so cool presentations and by night I’m an art ninja that wheatpaste art work around London.
