Babeworld is led by Ashleigh Williams (she/her) and Ingrid Banerjee Marvin (she/her), with associate artists Ellie Harman-Taylor (she/her), Gabriella Davies (she/her) and Caitlin Whittle (she/her).
Babeworld seeks to create a more representative art world through the creation of art, fundraising and creating grants, and facilitation of events - for those who are marginalised in the arts. With an emphasis on collaboration and co-creation, Babeworld’s practice focuses on themes of political and societal identity, specifically disability/access, neurodivergence, sex work and race. Their interactions with the communities they create and infiltrate consists of oversharing (otherwise known as attention-seeking) on the internet and through their events - and you best believe they'd overshare at a round table, and probably also cry. Babeworld are committed to bringing their ideas and networks to institutions and organisations in the art world, whether they want to hear it or not.
Babeworld runs the lecture series ‘Don’t Worry I’m Sick and Poor’ which has recently been delivered with ICA London, and they have been commissioned by organisations including East Street Arts, New Contemporaries, Montez Press, Huffpost, Gal-Dem, Shape Arts, Unlimited, Deptford X and Institute of Contemporary Art London.
