Empower the Black community and everyone benefits. Such is the belief of André Spence, founder of Global Purpose Enterprise – an initiative and network founded in 2017 to uplift young people of colour. Through guidance, mentorship and live events, Spence and his team help members find their purpose and, as a result, navigate their futures.

This year, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve partnered up with Global Purpose Enterprise for Purpose Leaders, an event taking place at 180 The Strand. The night will bring together influential Black figures, leaders and cultural tastemakers from the world of music, film, technology and social media for roundtable conversations on themes important to the Black community.

Ahead of the event, Spence spoke to some of these purpose leaders for a new seven-part video series, made exclusively for Soho House and filmed at Soho Works, 180 The Strand. In this episode, he sits down with self-taught Ghanaian-British artist, Sarah Owusu. 

Specialising in portraiture, Owusu has become well-known for her depictions of prominent figures that have shaped Black and African history. Her bright, abstract and sometimes distorted pieces of work form part of a discourse aimed at reclaiming Africa’s rich history, culture, and heritage.
