Tobi Adebajo on navigating a free, spiritual experience through all parts of life

Growing up with gal-dem

18-11-2021 • 40 mins

This week on Growing up with gal-dem we’re joined by Anti-Disciplinary artist Tobi Adebajo.

Tobi talks about being a doula from both beginning of life to end of life - supporting black women after experiencing a traumatic birth experience themselves. They discuss how they hold space of care for black women vs what is currently available in the healthcare system.

Tobi’s extract, written 10 years ago as they were starting their degree, is a poetic narrative asking Tobi to encourage the creativity they let slip as they entered a new phase of their life. Tobi encourages pushing yourself to write as a healing practice to process emotions and feelings despite what you have going on.
