New Artist Ambassador Adelaide Damoah

July 21, 2022

“We make our best work and the greatest contribution to our communities when we have continuity in safe, comfortable, and affordable spaces.”

Adelaide Damoah joins Creative Land Trust as an Ambassador, supporting our mission to build a portfolio of permanently affordable studio space for artists and makers.

We are pleased to announce that Adelaide has joined our distinguished group of artist Ambassadors, including Emmanuel Unaji and Yinka Shonibare CBE. Together they support and advocate for the charity, providing experience and understanding of artists’ requirements in London and beyond. Their expertise informs the decisions we make, and they provide invaluable support for our fundraising and property acquisition work.

Adelaide Damoah is a multidisciplinary artist who uses an investigative practice that currently spans painting, performance, collage, image transfer, and photographic processes. Key areas of interest for interrogation are colonialism, spirituality, and intersectional feminism.

Her most recent exhibitions include Mysteries of Desire at the Foundation H Museum, Paris. The Nightclubbing NFT collection with InFems and Carolina Herrera and Radical Joy at Sakhile&Me.

“We have to get over the romantic fantasy of the artist holed up in a precarious, drafty garret. It’s a nonsense – we make our best work and the greatest contribution to our communities when we have continuity in safe, comfortable, and affordable spaces in which to create. I believe that CLT is passionate about creating these conditions for artists and, as such, am very pleased and proud to join them as an artist ambassador.” – Adelaide Damoah

Adelaide is based at Thamesmead where she has studio space at Lakeside (Bow Arts, in association with Peabody), so she has a personal understanding of the importance of affordable creative workspace and the requirements of working artists.

Ambassadors are a vital element of Creative Land Trust’s work, and we are thrilled to announce Adelaide’s appointment.

Alex Notay and Catherine Webster, Co-Chairs of the Creative Land Trust Board said:

“We are thrilled to welcome Adelaide as a Creative Land Trust Artist Ambassador. The addition of another successful multidisciplinary artist to the team enhances our skill set and demonstrates the vital support that we receive from the creative community. Her breadth of expertise and insights will be enormously valuable to the Trust.”
