Creating the Climate for Change: Curating and Disability Arts in Mexico City

My practice used to be wide and shallow. I did lots of different things, kept so many plates spinning I often didn’t know what I was doing or where I was doing it half the time. There is always the fear that if you say no to something you’ll never work again. But I knew that method of working was unsustainable in the long term, and also, on reflection, I ended up doing things that my heart wasn’t fully into. I decided to take some time and reflect, ask some people for advice and think about what it was that I really wanted to do. I identified that my core practice was around conversations and that this supported all my other work – with a particular interest in Climate Change and Mental Health. From that premise I decided that if something didn’t fit with this context then I wouldn’t do it (unless it was a really interesting opportunity with interesting people).
