Nice To Meet You

šŸ“£ 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 December 2021.Ā 

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