Projects

I am involved in a number of projects on a local and global level. I donate my time and writing skills to these community projects.

Global

Citizen of Nowhereisland (2011-present)

Nowhere Island is a public art project based in the UK, conceived by artist Alex Hartley. The project aims to address the question ‘if we were to create a new nation, how might we begin?’

This project is based around a physical installation – an island travelling in international waters to which anyone can become a citizen and be involved with writing its constitution. The project calls on us all to become more aware of issues in international law, environmental and political campaigning, human migration, anthropology and psychology, and to take part in answering global questions that will ultimately affect us all.
