“Rekha was one of the organisers and I was continually impressed by her ability to achieve successful outcomes. She managed the logistics of the programme with complete competence and any problems that arose she defused with charisma that breached language barriers and overcame differences. I would thoroughly recommend her skills in this and other areas... (pakoras, coffee and singing, for example”.
“The organisation of this residency was top notch and will be hard surpass. The environment allowed for me to feel open and comfortable to experience and push my practice in ways that I had not previously envisioned. The timeline and scheduling were on point, and carried out with precision and much care. I feel that this experience has opened up new possibilities within my own practice and that it was very beneficial to my overall wellbeing”.
“I have worked with Rekha for the past year on curating and delivering an exhibition as well as creating new art works. This was a distillation of an 18-month oral history project with young people and members of the local community in Swiss Cottage, North Camden. I have found Rekha to be a very, creative, hard-working and original colleague. She is well organised, communicates effectively and isn’t afraid to use initiative.”
“Rekha Sameer brought the whole project to life and made it happen. She taught everyone in Residence the real meaning of making something happen out of nothing and how to create opportunities for yourself when it seems as though all doors have been closed on you. “I came away from the experience having learnt this very important life lesson, that you have to take the initiative and nobody is going to hold your hand in the right direction and funding will not magically appear on your lap, in a silver platter!”
