Ghairunisa Galeta’s professional experience sits at the crux of creative and traditional development support (primarily in health) – the common thread being a grounded approach to valuing cultural capital, respect for communities and anti-racism in practice.
Her work in the SADC region has had a dual focus on capacity development, regional HIV-AIDS prevention, sexual and reproductive rights.
As a consultant, she has worked on both US and SA projects supporting artists – including marketing (RPM MSC, New York), label startups (Motif Records), providing strategic support to individual artists (including management and tour support for Zaki Ibrahim, Naima McLean, BLK JKS, The Brother Moves On) and producing multi-stakeholder artistic productions (Freedom Day 2011, Union Buildings; Mixing It Up, British Council – dance development project).
Nisa has roots in the Cape Flats and Connecticut, but maintains active collaborative relationships with business and professional entities across three continents. She writes sometimes, and compiles constantly.
