About

My name is Fozia Ismail, I run a Somali supper club and research project in Bristol. 

Arawelo Eats is a platform for exploring East African food in exciting ways; not just what's being served on the plates at my supper club but what it means for our understanding of belonging in a post- Brexit world. 

This has involved me researching and writing about race and British identity for the Oxford Symposium on Food & Cookerydesigning workshops with Keep It Complex feminist art collective, Serpentine Gallery, Jerwood Project Space Museum of London and Colonial Countryside Project using food as method to think through some of these complex issues. 

I have been featured on Observer Food Magazine, BBC Radio 4 Food ProgrammeOxford Symposium on Food & Cookery Ox Tales podcast, Food 52, Crumbs Magazine, Vice Munchies & Bristol 24/7.

By day I am a Research Coordinator for University of West England and I am also a City Fellow for the Arnolfini - Centre for Contemporary Arts in Bristol on my project Camel Meat and Tapes.
