Ameera Kawash Portfolio

ABOUT

I am a writer, artist, creative technologist, and startup founder. My PhD thesis at the Royal College of Art focuses on digital retooling as an artistic strategy,  redesigning speculative processes to recalibrate care and consent in current media systems.   

I have a Psychotherapy & Counselling certificate from Regent's University. ​
