Year Long Project - Gwel Hag Ebron

The Year Long Project is a mentorship programme supported by Flushing Press. As a mentee and participant of the programme my work leads on from initial research on the links between visual images, community food systems, climate resilience and societal health.  

The final publication will be co-designed together with volunteers from a local community growing site through a series of participatory workshops. 

This publication ‘Gwel Hag Ebron’, (meaning ‘field and sky’ in Cornish) will be distrubuted across the UK and will share knowledge and resources on accessible, affordable, and ethical storytelling to land workers and growers.

The focus will be on telling stories of allotments, market gardens, farms, community fields and more using smartphones and cheap digital photography equipment.

The publication will be printed in a run of 500 copies and distributed to land workers and growers across the food system.  Throughout this work I will also be focussing on climate resilient food systems  in the face of climate breakdown and discussing themes of consent, photo ethics and social media for collective change.  

Funding opportunities:

While Gwel Hag Ebron is supported through the pro bono mentorship of Anthony Prothero, the project itself requires funding to make the workshops and publication a free resource for all and support local DIY art spaces.
