New Project Mother Trees Connect The Forest Launches

📣I am very happy to announce I have been awarded Arts Council England national lottery project grant funding and Counterpoints Arts grant support to launch a brand new participatory art-making project.

It has been a long journey to make it to this point, and I can’t wait to get started.

Mother Trees Connect The Forest will provide a nurturing opportunity for two community groups, made up of refugee and migrant women and children living in Dover and Thanet to connect through engaging in a bespoke participatory project. We will be celebrating migration and mothering, and exploring storytelling through painting, movement and poetry over seven workshops.

Nice To Meet You

📣 I am delighted to announce the launch of my new community outreach project: Nice To Meet You / Som Rado Hoij Tumen Spindzardom.

For this project I will be working with Roma women living in Dover. We will collaborate over a series of workshops to create artworks that will be exhibited at Turner Contemporary in March 2022. 

I can’t wait to meet the participants and learn more about Roma culture and heritage.
