Basma Khalifa is a Sudanese multidisciplinary creative currently living in London and raised in Northern Ireland and Scotland. 

Across all her creative outlets from her work as a Director, Filmmaker, Writer and Fashion Stylist, Basma believes in creating and telling stories about and for the underrepresented youth of our generation.

She speaks to cultures, heritage and sectors within society which she feels mould our future. Her work seeks to empower creatives and encourage others to explore their identity. Basma is perhaps best known for fronting her BBC3 Doc ‘Inside the real Saudi Arabia’ and Why I had to Leave’ and has filmed regular features on The One Show and Vice. 

She also hosts the 'Unpretty Podcast' which unpacks the deeply ingrained perceptions of beauty in society through the lens of black and non-black people of colour.

Most recently, Basma has talked for the likes of ITN about ‘Driving Change through Black Storytelling’ to coincide with Black History Month and BBC about where she finds inspiration and media consumption habits. 

She is an intelligent, interesting and honest speaker, who opens up important conversations in businesses that need to be had.
