Leading through intersectional practices, we value the creative possibilities that difference offers to transforming creative practice and contexts.

Caroline Ward is an artist whose practice works across moving image, design and sound to consider the biopolitics of co-existing with non-human species and matter. Her practice acts as critical explorations into public imagination as a contested site, informed by architecture, geobiology and technology, focusing on posthuman perspectives. Caroline trained in Fine Art (Brighton) and recently gained a Masters in Research from The School of Architecture at The Royal College of Art. As a designer she has worked for BBC Future Experiences and The Space.
Trained originally as a neuroscientist, with a PhD from The University of Manchester, Erinma went on to work in Science TV before securing a Sci-Art NESTA fellowship to evolve her practice through scriptwriting, filmmaking and digital participation. As an EAVE-trained producer, she has executive produced film slates and exhibitions for B3 Media and devised and advised on game concepts for The Science Museum Group. She teaches Science Communication and Future Media at Salford University.
