Multi-talented globe-trotting power gal Grace Ladoja is not only a filmmaker and global creative advisor, but a cultural curator working closely with the most relevant brands and artists today. Ladoja’s work with British musician Skepta, has led her to receiving an MBE from the British Queen for her services to the music industry in 2018, while her positivity is a weapon in itself, with her eyes-open approach an evident strength for the global work she executes.

It’s all about joining the dots, where she continues to lead a number of pivotal projects that connect global communities and transform the potential of their own artistic culture and expression, whilst consulting for various brands in New York, London and Berlin. From the establishment of Homecoming, a music, art and culture festival in Lagos, Nigeria in partnership with Nike; to her own London-based creative agency Metallic Inc.
