Project Credits:


The video is a co-commission between Allenheads Contemporary Arts’ CALL CENTRE residency and The Star and Shadow Cinema MICRO PROJECT COMMISSIONS - both initiated in 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.



CALL CENTRE is a collaborative residency which invited regional, national and international artists from contrasting rural and urban areas to reflect and pool their Covid-19 experience. From their ‘outposts’ six satellite artists responded on a variety of divergent themes including home, travel, trust, confinement, fragility, care and motherhood.
