For over three decades, Numbi Arts has been at the forefront of archiving British Somali heritage and has become a significant part of the East London cultural scene. Last year, the organization lost its residency and is currently crowd-funding in order to secure a permanent home for their work.

In this episode of Common Practice Sophie Hope talks with Kinsi Abdulleh, who founded Numbi Arts, and Hudda Khaireh, an independent researcher who is currently an associate there.

They discuss their work, their ambitions and achievements, what drives them, and their plans to create a Somali Museum in East London to document the history of Somali-British arts and culture.
