Alinta Sara

Alinta Sara (she/her) is an independent curator. Her work ties together cross-cultural diaspora projects, art, and languages, drawing on her Martinican and Guinean heritage, her academic background as an art historian, and her professional background as a teacher. She co-founded Bokantaj arts platform, aiming for the exchange between cultures with a “south-south” vision. She has been developing her curatorial practice in public engagement within community settings with various organisations and galleries in London, such as the October Gallery, Lon-Art, the Africa Centre, Greenwich Maritime Museum, and the Tate Modern. She co-curated the Divinations of Worlds to Come exhibitions at the Agency Gallery (2018), Our Story, Our Journey at the Black Cultural Archives (2021), and curated The Colour of Pain at Imperial College (2019). She managed the Sickle Cell Society heritage project “Our Journey, Our Story,” which looked at the history of sickle cell disease in the UK. She also worked as a heritage and community engagement manager for the Anti-Apartheid Legacy: Centre of Memory and Learning (CML). Recently, she worked on the Artist Legacies in Museum project for Art360, focusing on Donald Rodney Archives. Her curatorial practice links oral histories and visual arts and finds innovative ways to engage audiences.
