Korantema met S.I.D.E Director and Founder, Rebecca Hatchett through Makervercity.com and was supported by Rebecca when coming up with an interview formate for her Churchill Fellowship. After this Rebecca recommended Korantema apply for a young freelancer position at London Transport Museum and invited her to become a junior associate with S.I.D.E Pojects. Korantema now works as a freelancer with the London Transport Museum’s Youth Travel Ambassador’s program; a peer-to-peer project that promotes behaviour change in secondary schools across London. Previously, she has worked at the Natural History Museum, Horniman Museum and the Barbican Centre.
Korantema is particularly interested in the potential cultural institutions have to be accessible forums for communication, creativity and education within, and between, social groups. Having been awarded a 2015 Winston Churchill Memorial Trust travel fellowship, she spent 6 weeks in California, Germany and The Netherlands exploring how a variety of museums engage underrepresented audiences, including youth, ethnic minority and LGBTQ groups.
Currently, Korantema is building on the experiences from this fellowship as she works towards a Masters degree in Cultural Heritage at University College London.
