Maymana Arefin (she/they) is a multidisciplinary British-Bengali artist, writer and facilitator based in London.

Her practice spans mediums such as poetry, clay work, collage and painting in response to themes of ecology, grief, embodiment and the power of collective imagining. 

In 2020, Maymana founded @fungi.futures, a space to map radical alternative futures guided by her joy and passion for fungi. Through leading nature immersions, plant and fungi walks, her work focuses on deep rest and healing and restoring our communion with our non-human kin.

Maymana’s award-winning MSc research on how the mycelial networks of fungi may be used as a metaphor for mutual aid seeks to re-imagine an unjust world through a politics of hope. She is strongly committed to justice – in all of its forms – and believes that in order to realise this, we must prioritise care.
