In 2020 I set up a practice-led research project called Queer River, collaborating with artists, ecologists, writers and river related/cultural 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 crisis on river ecosystems and communities
- River restoration
I've since presented, exhibited and collaborated in a rage of settings in associated with a number of rivers and other wetland environments.
In Summer 2023 I held the Drawing on Water exhibition at The Pound Arts Centre, sharing artwork that has emerged out of this research project. A virtual tour of Drawing on Water will be available to view on the Queer River website soon.
Queer River continues to evolve and I welcome invitations to write, present and collaborate - please get in touch here.
