Moira Williams’ co-creative practice weaves together performance, group walks, science and sculpture. She invites people to reconfigure familiar objects and social events to offer multiple opportunities for building our social imagination and questioning systems of power and influence. For Moira participation is not about homogeneity it is in service of human connections and our connections to our world: to participate is to generate empathy and vitality. She has spoken at Open Engagement Conference for Art & Social Practice, Elastic City Walks Festival, Articulating Space Research Centre Falmouth University, UK and interviewed by C Magazine. Her works have been seen and supported by iLAND, The Kitchen, Flux Factory, ABC No Rio, NY, No Longer Empty, NY Cornell University, NY, The People’s Museum, Manchester, UK, CHRCH Projects Space, NY, Centennial National Park, Tennessee, WALK 21, Munich, Denniston Hill Artists Colony, NY, Footworks, UK, Buffalo University, NY the Ghetto Biennale, Haiti and Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico.
