Rajni worked as Project Director for the Live Art Development Agency on a series of projects during 2006-8 under the umbrella title Restock, Rethink, Reflect. This programme included a series of artistic and professional development initiatives for artists whose practices explore and question notions of cultural identity, and who are working, or interested in working, in Live Art and related performance based practices. Projects included Lore and Other Convergences, a workshop and series of talks with New York based artist Janine Antoni, the Open Nights discussion and events series co-curated with artist Barby Asante, and Documenting Live, a unique DVD and print resource featuring artists Barby Asante, Ansuman Biswas, Malika Booker, Sonia Boyce, George Chakravarthi, Robin Deacon, Yara El-Sherbini, Harminder Singh Judge, Keith Khan, David Medalla, Harold Offeh, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Ali Zaidi and curated by David A Bailey. The Restock, Rethink, Reflect series is planned to continue in 2009 with a focus on artists working with Live Art and disability.
