Our very first Editor in Residence: Kemi Alemoru took over Factory+ in Summer 2023. Kemi's residency explored radical ideas about space. A writer and editor originally from Manchester, Kemi is the former Culture Editor of gal-dem – the editorial platform dedicated to centring people of colour from marginalised genders – and has worked as a presenter for BBC3 and Channel 4. 

For Factory+, Kemi commissioned some of the most exciting voices in contemporary UK writing to explore the theme of space. Through a series of articles and deep dives, Kemi curated a range of viewpoints and opinions on the political nature of space and who gets to occupy it – from the sticky dancefloors of club culture to safe spaces for queer communities.
