Sound installation foregrounding the stories of people raised by their grandmothers

At different times and various times during the festival, Leon Clowes will present audio art pieces made from the stories told by people like him: the hidden constituency of people who were raised by grandmothers. Nan Kids, as coined by Russell Brand.

Our stories are hidden. Here, some are told.
