Our working-classes are often marginalised or overlooked particularly within the creative industries - excluding them from contributing to their own stories and narratives.
The Love light festival’s themes of community and inclusiveness seemed like a perfect opportunity to try and readdress that imbalance and I wanted to create a piece that would be fun and engaging for everyone attending the festival. The work is intended as a celebration of those communities who have and continue to do so much to protect us, keep us fed and care for our loved ones.
