Hannah Rustomjee

Hannah Rustomjee is a former student activist, writer, editor and social media officer of the Decolonise UoM Campaign at the University of Manchester where she studied BA Geography with International Study. Hannah’s strong motivation and enthusiasm for decoloniality and youth-led collaboration is also exemplified in her roles as Voluntary Archivist at Ahmed Iqbal Ullah RACE Centre, Community Producer Intern at Manchester Museum and as a ‘critical friend’ within their ‘Young People in Museums Collective’. Hannah wants to continue exploring how museums can expand upon their commitment to ensuring greater accountability, accessibility and equitability for the communities and groups that have traditionally been excluded and stereotyped by arts, culture, and heritage sectors. With a keen commitment to praxis, she is now based in Amsterdam studying an MA in Museum and Heritage Studies at Universiteit van Amsterdam.
