Description

Funny, intimate, political, a bit livid, powerful, powerless and patient. Sonia and Jo host a series of six-minute conversations. They have questions about how it's all going, big questions about the world and small questions about the state of your garden. Complexity takes time, it requires multiple voices and many levels of expertise. They'd like you to join the conversation. Sonia and Jo are two middle-aged, award-winning, international provincial artists. Inspired by research undertaken by Frank Bock and Katye Coe. 'A leap of faith' (CultureColony.com).
