Biography / Kai Lutterodt

Kai Lutterodt is a journalist and avid travel blogger, curator and founder of Diversity Matters; an awareness-raising platform with a focus on race equality and Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) representation in the Arts and Media. A graduate of University of the Arts London (UAL), Kai was inspired to advocate on behalf of marginalised students using her platforms as elected Students’ Union Officer to rally ‘decision makers’ around the discourse of race and representation.

In April 2016 Kai launched Diversity Matters Awareness Week at University of the Arts London, themed “Let’s Talk About Race”. The week’s events were an attempt to deconstruct race agendas in the work place and academia, environments where addressing race is often overlooked. On the same theme, Kai also curated her first exhibition which showcased works from 16 artists from diverse communities, each interpreting the theme based on their own interpretation and “lived experience”.

As an avid traveller and facilitator, Kai has hosted creative arts workshops in Haiti, Dominican Republic, Uganda and Kenya as a way of using art to empower children from marginalised communities. Though Diversity Matters and Diversity Matters Beyond Borders, Kai continues to use her creative skills – writing, photography and video production – to promote diversity, equality and inclusion in the UK and beyond. In 2018 Kai joined DoGoodFilms; a video production company and communication consultancy working with humanitarian organisations, NGOs and social enterprises.
