"Your silence will not protect you."

Audre Lorde (1934-1992) was an American poet, essayist, and civil rights activist. A self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” she dedicated her life to leading a fight against the injustices of racism, classism, sexism & homophobia by leveraging the powers of education and creative expression to raise the voices of the underprivileged and the underrepresented.

Hello! My name is Nikol and I look after the Laidlaw Scholars Network. I am originally from Kazakhstan and I studied Human Sciences at UCL. My final research explored the potential effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals, and I also took modules such as Ethnographic Documentary Filmmaking, Anthropology of the Built Environment, Art in the Public Sphere, and other less interesting-sounding things :) Drop me a line at if you have any questions about the Network or just fancy a chat. Alternatively, you can use the teal chat bubble in the right bottom corner of your screen and I'll reply ASAP!
