Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Are you an architect, designer or built environment enthusiast? Come and speak to us to find out more about BFA’s work, aims and objectives and to hear about women who have often been left out of the architecture discourse.
Join Black Females in Architecture Co-founder Neba Sere on Friday morning 6th March at Fora - Brick Lane to celebrate International Women’s Day over breakfast.
Black Females in Architecture (BFA) was founded by Akua Danso, Alisha Morenike Fisher, Neba Sere and Selasi Setufe in June 2018. BFA is a network and social enterprise providing access, creative opportunities and mentorships for black and black mixed heritage women in the built environment, within architecture, planning, construction, interior design, landscape architecture, engineering and urbanism. As of this year, BFA has already built a community of over 250 members and counting. BFA aims to thrive nationally & globally and increase our representation within our industries, and in so doing, widely improving diversity.
