She is a cofounder and member of Platform2: Art and Activism (2009-2012), an experimental forum about creative practices at the intersection of social issues. Currently she and Andi Sutton are working together with many others as part of the collective Plotform on projects that activate engagement in our local communities around climate activism, citizen science, and water ecologies.
