We are a new collective formed in response to the current context.

Whilst also using site specific, temporary processes to connect with hinterland spaces (woodland, wild spaces, vacant buildings) to enable individuals and communities to navigate through ‘crossroads of change’ and to mark that transition together. She approaches her work collaboratively; moving away from human-centric ideas of what this means and understanding how dynamics of power, language and history affect people’s choices and ability to engage together in moments change.
