Nicola Jayne Maskrey in Traces 17

Our lives are the sum of millions of moments colliding to make up the past, present and the future. But what traces do these moments leave behind and how do they impact the people we are?

In Traces 17 multidisciplinary artists that attend the peer group at the Free Space Project explore who we have been, where we are now and who we would like to be. The artist peer group is a monthly event for artists that are exploring health and wellbeing in their practice, often covering complex and emotional experiences. See the group website for more details.
