Désirée Coral

About the residency

Désirée Coral is the G.R.E.E.N. Artist in Residence at the centre until March 2024. The role of G.R.E.E.N. Artist in Residence was developed in conversation with local communities. Our volunteers, allotment holders, and the local community are keen to participate in climate action and the G.R.E.E.N. Artist will facilitate this. The residency will last one year and will provide time and space for the artist to explore their practice in relation to climate change.
