ABOUT

We are

a social impact company

championing independent artistic expression

in the name of

equitable, creative, evolution.

Gold Host is

a platform

for elevating voices

and

arming the world with humanity.

We promote

artistic representation and collaboration.

​More specifically, we 

support independent artists,

curate collaborative artistic efforts, 

share a broad spectrum of perspectives and opinions,

develop independent and commissioned projects,

and host inclusive events.

Our underlying mandate is

to promote social justice

between groups and individuals across the planet,

specifically drawing on our networks in the U.K. and West Africa.

At ​Gold Host,

we are committed to world-building.

We believe

that this can only be achieved by

expanding our awareness of

the breadth of humanity.

 

We believe

everyone has the right to express themselves

and be heard.

Expression is the tool of world-building.

We are defined by

our pledge to the making of worlds

that place the restoration of our shared humanity and interspecies relations

at the centre of its universe.

We're here to host humanity.

Our vision

draws on the prophetically complete work of Cameroonian philosopher, 

Achille Mbembe in Critique of Black Reason (2017) 

“There is therefore only one world,

at least for now,

and that world is all there is.

 

What we all therefore have in common is

the feeling or desire that each of us must be a full human being.

The desire for the fullness of humanity is something we all share.

And, more and more,

we also all share the proximity of the distant.

 

Whether we want to or not,

the fact remains that we all share this world.

It is all there is, and all that we have.

 

To build a world that we share,

we must restore the humanity

stolen from those

who have historically been subjected to

the processes of abstraction and objectification.

 

From this perspective,

the concept of reparation

is not only an economic project

but also a process of reassembling amputated parts,

repairing broken links,

relaunching the forms of reciprocity

without which there can be no progress for humanity.

 

For, in the end, there is only one world.

It is composed of a totality of a thousand parts.

Of everyone. Of all worlds.
