Founder - Hyphen Poetry


Professional Bio

Nikita Shah is a poet, founder of Hyphen Poetry, Consultant and Project Manager at Justice Studio. Nikita has bridged her practice of art and professional work to develop a performative decolonial lens. She has a background in migration, modern slavery, decoloniality, climate and gender-related issues. Nikita uses poetry to explore complex themes, to encourage self-reflection and dialogue. Most recently, she has published poetry in Are We Europe's Colonialism Issue, ran a course on Poetic Healing and ran a number of workshops on decolonising identity. She has also co-led a series of ‘Unlearning Sessions’ to promote anti-racist and decolonial practices in the workplace; creating a safe, open and trusting space for colleagues to critically challenge and re-imagine international development. Nikita holds an MA in Global Governance from the University of Waterloo, Balsillie School of International Affairs.
