Lightseekers is a creative social enterprise. We use photography and storytelling as a platform to learn about and engage with important social issues. We specialise in cross-cultural education and deliver thought provoking programmes to low-income areas, where creative engagement is low and students are likely to experience exclusion and discrimination.


There are three directors, but no full time staff. Projects are carried out as and when funding is available. Lightseekers was founded by Kajal Nisha Patel in 2007, following a year of working in international development in India. She now works as an artist, photographer and educator, between the UK and India.
