Rebecca Ajulu-Bushell 

BFA Oxon 

The daughter of humanitarian aid workers Rebecca grew up all over Africa, before returning to the UK to pursue her sporting and academic careers. After retiring from competitive sport she graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Whilst there she founded a Women’s Network (PWN), held multiple solo exhibitions – installing her films all over Oxford – and read extensively on aesthetics and the autonomy of contemporary art. Following graduation Rebecca moved to Paris where she worked in communications and corporate strategy, learnt French, and continued to make films. She has worked in the education department at the Saatchi Gallery, the Gender department at Oxfam, and as a History of Art mentor and tutor: working with Oxbridge Applicants. She is currently in pre-production for her first documentary in collaboration with the Cape Town Film Festival, an exploration of her late father’s life: following his political activism, imprisonment, and academic career. Rebecca splits her time between London, Oxford, and her home in the Cotswolds; she continues with her strategy work as a freelance consultant; whilst continuing to make, produce, and talk about art.
