Recipe for a Happy Mind – Dream(ing) Field Lab Edition
Artist Linett Kamala shares her insights formulated whilst taking part in the Dream(ing) Field Lab retreat over a weekend in June 2021 in this special audio edition of her on-going project ‘Recipe for a Happy Mind’.
Linett was part of a group of women and femmes from the African diaspora who were invited to re-vision their relationship with land in the context of climate breakdown.
Through a mixture of soundscapes taken from the Somerset countryside, her favourite nature inspired songs, anecdotes, affirmations and advice, Linett will give listeners a visceral gift to support their wellness during this pandemic.
