Jo is an artist and keen gardener of gardens and growing community? She lives in Wales and her artistic work evolves around the question, What is Community?
In 2019 and 2020 Jo worked on Ways of Being Together at Shoreditch Town Hall for Chinese Arts Now Festival. Neither Here Nor There, The Sun’s Come Out and To Tell You the Truth, are spoken and written word performances co-created with artist Sonia Hughes. The Rest of Our Lives was created and performed with artist and clown George Orange. Last November, Jo began a dance project called Marathon of Intimacies in collaboration with artist Anushiye Yarnell.
