She is author of The Great Imagining - how the arts spark cultural change in Zero Carbon Britain's Making It Happen and a founder 'declarer' of Culture Declares, a global movement of artists and cultural organisations declaring a climate and ecological emergency. She is currently working - as one of four women artists - on Walking Forest a commission for Season for Change and Coventry City of Culture 2021 that draws on the inspiration of trees, the forest ecosystem and creative movements of resistance and change making across the world, past and present.
