I had so much fun sharing Anansi tales, spider facts and singing songs with The Invention Rooms, Imperial College.

Anansi tales were first told in Ghana by the Ashanti people. In time the stories spread across Ghana, throughout West Africa, the Caribbean and the world. I love how the stories reflect the cunning nature of spiders (and many humans!).

The Invention Rooms is a unique space in White City, where the local community and Imperial come together to collaborate, innovate and make. I’m really looking forward to visiting again in person in 2021!
