DIG was a collective and not-for profit arts initiative based in Lewisham which, after 3 months of renovation, housed 17 studios, 2 rehearsal rooms, a 2000 sq ft project space, as well as wood and casting workshops. This ran parallel to educational workshops such as DIG Maths Club, Life Drawing and lectures, including the Turner Prize winning architecture group Assemble, as well as an ongoing programme of performances, exhibitions, workshops and screenings.

The Collective Matter of Making
Founded 2017
Founder and workshop facilitator

The Collective Matter of Making is an ongoing project exploring the symbiotic relationship between making and thinking. Through drop-in clay workshops the public are invited to mould, model and get messy together; using clay as a medium for creative collaboration and social engagement and making as a vessel for thinking. 
Most recently The Collective Matter of Making was included in The World Transformed Festival, Brighton 2017.
