Kagi arrived in Australia in 2016.

After fleeing the war ravaging their home country of Sudan, Kagi and her sisters fled to Kenya where they lived in a refugee camp for much of their life. Kagi was separated from her sisters for a time, but they were miraculously reunited and relocated to Brisbane.

Kagi’s passion for art started when she was very young, but it was not until she moved to Australia that she was given the opportunity to pursue it.

In 2017 she was one of 300 young refugees and newly arrived migrants who took part in the Harmony Art Collective project by aMBUSH Gallery in collaboration with SBS.

In early 2018 she was part of an exhibition of five artists’ work that commemorates and celebrates the historical links between South Australia and the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. ‘Nuba Mountain Circle Exhibition’ was hosted by the City of Charles Sturt Library and Civic Centre in Adelaide to coincide with Harmony Day.

Kagi’s has founded Nubia Designs, a social enterprise that aims to create social change through art. She offers art workshops that foster intercultural understanding, build cohesive communities and create sustainable and meaningful employment opportunities through art. Nubia Designs also offers a range of unique products designed and handmade by African artists both locally in Australia and from around the world. The products are ethically sourced from organisations that provide training and employment to people from refugee and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Kagi's Story is one of four documentary films created in partnership with Multicultural Australia and Griffith Film School, featuring the extraordinary journeys of people from a refugee background, who now call Brisbane their home.

REIMAGINE Virtual Events premieres these documentaries to an online audience as part of our Cultural Connections Cinema program, featuring storytelling and events that enrich our understanding of the many people and cultures that call this place home.
