She is ⅓ of Domestic Science, a collective of artists exploring narratives around science and data that surrounds us everyday. She is ¼ of Re-Dock, an artist collective working with people and technology based in Liverpool and Manchester.
She has worked with Universities (Lancaster, Liverpool John Moores University, Manchester Metropolitan University) and cultural institutions (FACT Liverpool, Metal Culture, International Slavery Museum, National Trust ) to create a mixing ground for diverse disciplines and divergent communities to come together and make something new.

Young people and artists will explore the intersection of criminal and environmental justice, through the co-creation of an interactive gaming artwork.
Wild Natures has been selected to be part of the inaugural WORLDING programme developed by Unity Technologies and the Co-Creation Studio at MIT Open Documentary Lab.
