Young Artists

39 young artists from West London and beyond, produced a series of truly dynamic and innovative creative outcomes across the 4 phases of the Birth of Cool. They developed skills that were taught by industry professionals in film-making, oral history recording, digital arts, fashion design, photography, performance, curating, creative blogging and digital branding. 

Each young artist brought there very own unique energy, perspective and skills; specialising in differing art forms, allowing for a diverse and collaborative creative process that when brought together delivered fantastic creative outcomes

Adil - Actor/Writer

I am an actor and writer. I'm currently exploring my identity as a 1st gen Brit, and as a person of mixed heritage.  I feel like my life has been a film and that has come to my realisation the older I get.


The stories I have to tell and my experiences are so unique and I have a duty to tell them. Maybe my stories could inspire, awaken and touch those whose stories have never been told like mine.
