I am in the process of setting up a practice-led research project called Queer River, collaborating with a number of artists and river related organisations, as a way of exploring the relationship between the following:
- LGBT+ people’s experiences of rivers
- Queer perspectives on Climate Justice
- The impact of the climate and ecological crisis on river ecosystems and communities
- River restoration and Rewilding
My primary focus will be the Hampshire Avon, which flows from near my home in the Pewsey Vale in Wiltshire, down to the sea at Christchurch, Dorset, and the Bristol Avon which flows west towards the city of Bristol.
