Lehni Lamide Davies


Lehni Lamide Davies is an Performance Artist, Creative Facilitator and Producer who works on performances, installations, exhibitions and participatory arts projects. Her creative practice utilises multiple art forms (drama, story, song, image and movement) to uncover intimate narratives around wellbeing, identity and interconnectedness, bringing to life stories that are shared, nurtured and celebrated.

Creative work includes Breaking the Silence – a participatory performance and sound project on women and censorship.
Attending Service – a video poem/performance installation about immigration and isolation based on real stories from immigrant female bathroom attendants.
She is currently developing MotherSong – a participatory sound and performance installation creating a soundscape of lullaby songs to explore the intimate relationship between empathy and wellbeing in motherhood.

As a creative facilitator, she has facilitated and delivered participatory arts projects and drama workshops in schools, museums, detention centers and community spaces. Projects for Magic Me include Portraits of a Dream – a intergenerational performance and photography project with residents and staff at Jewish Care home in North London that playfully explored their hopes, aspirations, memories and dreams; and The Museum of Us – a site-specific intergenerational storytelling project with grandparents and grandchildren at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.
