Muneera Pilgrim: IBT Artist, Thinker and Researcher

Muneera is Resident Artist and Researcher on IBT’s We Are Bristol, a collaboration with community organisations Eastside Community Trust, Ambition Lawrence Weston and Bristol residents.

She is an artist, cultural producer, writer and mental health worker invested in re-centring people who are left on the margins and telling stories that are rarely told, rarely listened to, and rarely believed.

From 2020, as part of We Are Bristol, Muneera worked with women connected to Bristol on the Joy Project, creating an online community and a place to explore joy and hope. Through the Joy Project, she was inspired to create a poem. Throughout March 2022 fragments of the Joy project poem will be dispersed across Easton or St Pauls or the harbourside creating a trail across the city. Find out more. 

Muneera took part in our 2019 Artist Development Programme Creative Exchange Lab and represented IBT at PuSh Festival in Vancouver in Feb 2020.
