I’ve been so grateful to work alongside two WONDERFUL womxn over the last year, as we embarked on a long-distanced creative adventure together thanks to some DYCP funding awarded by Arts Council England. We are all so excited to finally announce that our first online exhibition is now LIVE!
We have had to reschedule our planned Instagram Live launch event as I have been unwell suddenly with – yes – COVID.
We have been working together since March, and this exhibition presents works-in-progress, as well as the methods we used to work together, what we did, how we did it and who we became.
