Sunshine England (2022), video still
Here/Now is a long-term collaboration with a group of unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors from Afghanistan, Iran, Sudan and The Gambia. The project, which considers resilience, presence and place, was commissioned by Kettle’s Yard and funded by Cambridge City Council with support from Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridge Regional College, North Cambridge Community Partnership and Arts Council England.
Collaborative artwork outcomes include a video work Sunshine England and a public installation on the exterior of Nun's Way Pavilion in North Cambridge (also titled Here/Now). For their work on the project, the participants earned an Arts Award, which was presented to them by the Mayor of Cambridge.
