Linett Kamala was the 9th subject of the ‘You Are Enough’ series of portraits painted across London. The paintings created by artist Neequaye ‘Dreph’ Dsane is a tribute to his friends who are doing amazing things for their communities and society at large.
Linett has always been passionate about improving the lives of others, especially young people through education, wellbeing and the arts. She has worked tirelessly with organisations across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
Some of her contributions include;
- Being a founding cohort member of Future Leaders, a pioneering organisation set up to train exceptional leaders for schools in challenging circumstances. This organisation has since gone onto grow nationally and is now known as School Ambition Leadership
- Coming up with concept and set up of the South Kilburn Studios in her local community which has gone on to support numerous creatives at the start of their career including chart topping music band Clean Bandit, K2K Radio, Paint Jam and design collective Oomk.
- The South Kilburn Studios also formed the basis of successful bids by Brent Council to be named the 2020 London Borough of Culture, as well as secure funding from the Mayor of London to set up The Granville, a new enterprise hub in NW London.
