Nature, then, organises relationships. 

Deborah Bird Rose, 2002




We draw back the curtain of modern human assumptions about other species and aspects of the world by listening, and staying in conversation with the world. All elements, both visible and invisible, are possible communicators, and beings of purpose. Our group of human collaborators is diverse across artistic, scholarly, activist, and academic arenas, with strong research skills in both human and more-than-human centered work.

Dreaming speaks to relationships that structure obligations of care, and that constitute webs of reciprocities within the created world.
