Find out more about Call Us Angels here.
Call Us Angels is a practice-as-research project that creatively and critically explores the relationship between gender and the ecological crisis. Throughout this project, I have been collecting rubbish and litter picking in order to make angel wings out of trash. I then wore these wings in 'A Call to Action'. This involved litter picking with fellow angels to make my local community more aware of the relationship between gender and the ecological crisis. I then invited fellow angels to start making their own angel wings out of trash.
Having started this as an MA theatre final assignment at Roehampton University, I hope to continue to nurture the project into a call for action against climate change, the ecological crisis and gender disparities.
A STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Started to collect my trash and go litter picking.
Created an Instagram account to track my process of making the wings through weekly video posts and daily vlogs.
This became a platform for learning and a community of angels.
Still caring for my own wings.
Aiming to create monthly litter picking sessions and workshops to help other women make their own trash wings.
Carrying on with Instagram to continue to learn, share research and start conversations about gender and the ecological crisis.
