On being a human

Humans of Here East...

I co-work at The Trampery on the Gantry, at innovation and technology campus Here East, formerly the press centre for the 2012 Olympics. Interviewed for its impact report case study on responses to the pandemic, I’ve been talking about the value of having brains to pick, being part of the wider Here East and Hackney Wick community and stepping back to work-from-home to make more, safer space for my studio-mates.

I also talk about broadening my creative practice and adapting my work on communications as clients have pivoted their own activities online.

I’ve been proud to represent my community – and to show what I’m up to as an older creative practitioner who is approaching her work, and these times, in a spirit of enquiry.
