is a creative lab directed by dr kit braybrooke & sophie huckfield which brings artists and communities together around the world to explore the critical dynamics of the Anthropocene, and celebrate its more-than-human possibilities1.

our conceptual framing is derived from the ancient tradition of commoning, or the act of living in close connection with our world’s commons - collectively maintained resources from forests and rivers to digital code. this looks a lot like the symbiosis of lichens, fungi and algae - trusted others working together for mutual benefit. “a lichen is not a single organism; it is a stable association between many”.

our approaches are inclusive and participatory. we like to learn, make and think together in ways that create spaces of care. we do this in a variety of ways, from socially-engaged art and storytelling to critical design and public interventions.

recent commissions with our clients have included:

  1. building sustainable and care-full futures;
  2. re-mapping the possibilities and participants of public spaces;
  3. creating safe environments in/across digital worlds;
  4. decolonising and culturejamming cultural collections;
  5. rituals and exchanges that explore our multispecies interconnections.

to get in touch about a new project, say hello on twitter or email.

you are also invited to join us on art / tech / nature / culture, a global community of practice for creative experimenters across disciplines.

together, let’s evolve from a society of 'me' to one of us. ✊

1. we work within the UN SDGs as a core reference point across all projects.
