“While We Belong to Ourselves”

Owls worked with Caitlin Griffiths as part of a participatory-art project that aims to improve well-being and tolerance through knowledge of how we form our identities internally and how we perform them externally. This knowledge has informed workshops with 100 young people (14-17) across 5 schools in Camden and an exhibition of new work at Swiss Cottage Gallery that took place in February 2018.

Camerados is a social movement that believes two things are missing from most services helping people with tough times: Friends and Purpose.

We co-developed the Living Room concept to make it a global phenomenon.
