Humzah is a Young Evaluator working on the Our Shared Cultural Heritage project in Glasgow.
The Our Shared Cultural Heritage project focuses on exploring the shared cultures and histories of the UK and South Asia (mainly the areas that India, Pakistan and Bangladesh cover). The project works with young people aged 11-25 to experiment and create new ways for museums and youth organisations to work together and become better places for young people to explore identity, connect with others and to create new opportunities for young people.
Our Shared Cultural Heritage is a project led by British Council, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund as one of the Kick The Dust programmes, delivered with partners Glasgow Life, Manchester Museum and UK Youth, with The Audience Agency as the evaluation partner. Humzah is working alongside with The Audience Agency to monitor and evaluate activities, based on the OSCH Activity Plan, the OSCH Evaluation Framework and the Evaluation Toolkit, all of which he helped develop.
Humzah currently attends high school and is studying Maths, English, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. He has an interest in cultural heritage and recently spoke at the launch of the ‘Glaswegasian’ project in Scotland Street Museum, Glasgow, a project which aims to archive stories of South Asian Immigrants. Humzah served on the steering committee of ‘My Kahanni’, a project that encourages young people to explore identity and cultural heritage to tackle contemporary issues.
In his spare time, Humzah enjoys cycling, playing badminton, current affairs and anything medicine related.
