Tolu Agbelusi is a woman of many talents. The Nigerian British poet, playwright, performer, educator and lawyer is based in London, where her artistic practice focuses on building communities and empowering people through literature.
Supported by several Arts Council grants, Tolu created the 'Home Is... Project', a collaborative, poetry-based project exploring various concepts of home and displacement. And her debut multi-hander play, Ilé La Wà, received rave reviews from theatre critics following several sold-out shows between Summer 2018 and Spring 2019.
We love how Tolu's work explores the complex and challenging issues surrounding the idea of 'belonging' to a place you call home. We reached out to Tolu to find out some of her special places in London...
