Sadiki Harris joined the Black Thrive movement after meeting Cllr Jacqui Dyer at a Mental Health conference in 2016. Initially joining as a volunteer Sadiki helped to make decisions on the website and the logo.

When Black Thrive needed some postcards designed for its launch in 2017, Sadiki jumped at the chance to create something that would be seen around Lambeth. Months later Sadiki has now established himself as the Black Thrive Communication Lead, helping them to achieve their visual goals through design and videography. 

A son of Lambeth, Sadiki graduated from university in 2008 and has predominately worked in the third sector since that time. In 2010 Sadiki became the vice chairman of the Lewisham Stop and Search group and in doing so created a website and marketing materials that ensured the likes of Sky News, the BBC and the Home Office would get in contact for information. In 2014 Sadiki stepped down amidst the varying changes that took place across borough councils where independent advisory groups were dissolved into Safer Neighbourhood Board initiatives by MOPAC.

An unpublished writer, an avid videographer and somewhat decent graphic designer, Sadiki considers himself to be a creative and extremely lucky to be given a chance to change the "look" and "feel" of mental health within the black community of Lambeth. 

Sadiki holds a B.A (Hons) in Marketing and Advertising from University of Arts London.
