Our guest speakers were:
Lauren and Liv, formally known as Pickle Illustration, are Birmingham based illustrators and public artists. Creating characterful and colourful outcomes, they create work ranging from painted grasshopper trails to projected window animations. Their aim is to always spread joy through illustration and to push the boundaries of where and what illustration can be.
Bryony Benge-Abbott is an interdisciplinary artist exploring our relationship to nature at the intersection of science and spirituality. Bringing different cosmologies together through painting, public art and wild drawing walks, her work focuses on expanding our sense of belonging and community in light of the ecological and climate crisis.
Jacob V Joyce
Jacob V Joyce is an artist with a community facing practice that amplifies and nourishes both historical and emerging queer and decolonial narratives. Joyce’s work ranges from afro-futurist world building workshops to mural painting, comic books, performance art and punk music with their band Screaming Toenail.
