Biography

Jade Avia is a young, beautiful, natural TV and Radio presenter. She currently co-hosts the Capital Xtra Breakfast Show with Kojo and presents her own Sunday evening show 16.00-20.00. Jade also hosts The Chart Show for Emirates in flight entertainment. Jade is very hands on and has recently produced and presented an online TV Show called LipGloss and Candy Floss.

Jade grew up in rural Gloucestershire where she attended an all-girls grammar school, but, always one to prove her independence, at the tender age of sixteen she made the decision to move out of her family home and begin her career in the media.

Jade regularly attended studio sessions and began recording songs which would eventually end up being played on local radio shows. After achieving her A-levels, she went to Birmingham City University where she graduated with a first class honours degree in Media and Communications, with a specialism in radio. Radio quickly began to take precedence in Jade’s life; as a student, she worked at multiple local stations and eventually ended up working for Word on Road TV.

This has raised may niggling issues especially with yoga meditation that's quite popular.

A Moving Image : A Film about Gentrification

 A multimedia feature film about Gentrification in Brixton and South London

Tanya Fear

Storyline

A Moving Image is a multimedia feature film about Gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art.

We follow Nina, a young stifled artist as she returns to her community after a long absence – she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification and struggles with her complicity.

She forms a three-way relationship with an actor called Mickey and a Nigerian performance artist called Ayo, who both have very different views on the changes taking place in their environment.

During an unnaturally hot summer in London, Nina sets out to create the ultimate piece of art to explore her complex relationship with her community.

In doing so, she poses a tricky question – is she truly part of the problem or can she use her work to be part of the solution?

On her journey, she interviews real members of the community who have been affected by Gentrification, blurring the line between reality and fiction.

June has enjoyed a 15-year career which has already seen her become one of the most recognizable faces of British television, as well as being one of the UK’s most intelligent and dynamic young hosts! So much so that HM The Queen awarded her an MBE in 2007 for her services to broadcasting and charity, making June one of the youngest people to receive the award.

Over the years she’s taken on the world’s most challenging live audiences: from hosting 2005’s major Make Poverty History event in London’s Trafalgar Square to presenting at the UK leg of Live Earth in 2007. In 2008 she even hosted Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday celebrations alongside Will Smith in front of 30,000 people at London’s Hyde Park!

As well as her broadcasting work June is also passionately involved with several charitable foundations having worked extensively with HRH Prince Charles for over a decade as an ambassador for his charity the Prince’s Trust, as well as campaigning for The One and Product (RED). And when she’s not busy doing any of that she’s working as Co-Founder of the WIE Network (Women:Inspiration & Enterprise).

After living in America for 8 years, June has recently moved back to her hometown of London and is thrilled to be joining the Loose team.

Chaired by Tiziana Morosetti (University of Oxford), the round table discusses contemporary attempts to re-enact ‘human zoos’ and their artistic politics after the much-criticised and eventually cancelled performance of Brett Bailey’s Exhibit B at the Barbican in 2014. Are re-enactments of ‘human zoos’ useful/desirable? Do they effectively tackle racial politics? Are we, as one petition stated, justified in censoring them when they risk being racially offensive?
