p.D. casely-hayford

every story changes culture...

experimental film; creative writing;
soundscape artist; poet;
performance improvisation;
international collaborations in all things creative.

P.D. Casely-Hayford has worked across all platforms of creativity, including experimental film; soundscape composition and production; performance and creative writing, directing in performing arts, and directing and producing film-theatre hybrid documentaries.

Based in Australia, she holds a Master of Arts (Research) Creative Writing. She is currently undertaking a interdisciplinary Phd in film which is exploring legacy and experimental film practice of non-Eurocentric women filmmakers. Her most recent books are Jembe, the Journey Home - [book I of the Kembrekki Trilogy], and When Freedom Kissed Her; a poetry publication. Details of some of her projects and collaborations can be found at laterallycreative[dot]com.

Her current project is Sankofa Dreaming: Explorations of legacy; a series of six experimental films exploring the legacy of enslavement.

After years of extensive travel and cultural interchanges, Ghana, the home of her family and heritage, remains a central inspiration for P.D. Casely-Hayford.

She welcomes opportunities for on-line collaboration and international collaborative projects with fellow creative practitioners.

P.d's philosophy "every story changes culture".
