Renée Akitelek Mboya is a writer, curator, and filmmaker. Her work addresses biography and storytelling as a form of research and production. Mboya is currently concerned with how images are used to reinforce the institutionalized narrative of the racialized body as a constant danger to law enforcement. Recent projects include Sweet Like Honey (Northern Corner Gallery, Musanze, 2022) and A Glossary of Words My Mother Never Taught Me (Cell Project Space, London, 2021). Mboya works between Kigali, Rwanda, and Nairobi, Kenya, and is a collaborative editor at the Wali Chafu Collective.
