Arts and culture is the answer

  • Summary

  • In episode 6 of 9 Miles East podcast, we meet AJ Haastrup, the co-founder at One Room Live,  Ade Yusuf, the head of collaborations and partnerships at One Room Live, and Edem Setsoafia, the co-founder at Area 44, who are joint Grow Fund grant recipients. 


    Barking and Dagenham wasn’t always a positive place for people of colour to live, but it has transformed into a borough that is bursting with cultural diversity and creative energy. Passionate about harnessing that creative energy are Ade, AJ and Edem. They work together to showcase the borough’s imaginative nature through music and arts events. 


    Collectively they want local creatives to know Barking & Dagenham is somewhere to stay, build and grow artistically.  By working with local artists and other young people in the borough, they are putting Barking and Dagenham on the map as a creative hub.
