Please note we are holding our Lunchtime Talks online only for now - we are looking forward to seeing you in the building again soon.

In this lunchtime talk, Sabba Khan is going to give a reflective presentation on her graphic novel, The Roles We Play and what she has got up to now- half year beyond its release. She will muse over old thoughts, finished and unfinished projects, new resolutions, ways to grow and push forward from where her visual practice really kicked off. Join her in the space she creates for herself and leave thinking of new possibilities for your own trajectory.

Sabba Khan is an artist, architectural designer and graphic novelist. Her debut graphic novel, The Roles We Play, is one of the Guardian's top 11 graphic novels of 2021 and  Cosmopolitan's 20 books for South Asian Heritage Month. Her book delves into a largely unspoken and unacknowledged part of British history - the Mirpuri migration history and is essential reading in understanding contemporary diaspora culture. Her wider practice looks at unpacking rootlessness, displacement and intergenerational trauma faced by migrant communities who sit in the aftermath of colonial legacy. She uses lived experience, memories and oral histories to expose how wider policies affect our day to day.
