This Garden of Ours, a partnership with Journeys Festival International, explores the positive effects of nature and diversity within it as well as critiquing the key role of botany in the construction of global power dynamics and the lasting effects this has on migration and attitudes towards it. The project consisted of a 6-month research and workshop schedule before together producing an ongoing public-facing programme of exhibitions and events.
