Jane Thakoordin

Jane is a participatory artist who works with visual arts and textiles. She is an activist, community organiser and founder of Birmingham Artivistas – a collective of artists who use art for protest and change. She is a mental health professional and is an advocate for, and supporter of, asylum seekers and refugees in our city.

She is particularly interested in participatory arts in a contemporary context and wants to explore what Eastside Projects can do to enable local communities, who are often transient, to feel the gallery is a space for them to enjoy.
