JO HODGES – Liv.In.G. Live Internationalization Gateway

I am applying as one of a collaborative practice:
Robbie Coleman and Jo Hodges are trans-disciplinary public artists based in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
Robbie Coleman is an artist and curator with a background in sculpture and live art. ( He project manages large-scale public arts projects and is Creative Director of the D-LUX Light Festival and was co-curator of The Environmental Arts Festival Scotland (EAFS)
Jo Hodges ( is an artist, curator and producer with a background in Human Ecology, community development and social justice.
Jointly their work investigates ecological and socio-cultural systems, processes, relationships and change. Their interests span environment, technology, culture, conflict, adaptation and resilience, speculative futures, global relationships to the local, participatory culture and the role of art in social and ecological change. They are interested in research, experimentation and collaboration and the resulting work takes many forms including temporary and permanent works, site specific installations, socially engaged and participatory processes and explorations of new strategies for working in public space.
They are Director-Curators of Sanctuary Lab (, a public art laboratory in the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park exploring environment, culture and technology.
Together with Prof. Mike Bonaventura, they run The Museums of the Future Now ( an evolving series of speculative artworks and participatory workshops designed to explore the web of ecological, cultural, technological and political factors that combine to create complex challenges for society and environment both now and in the future.
They have previously worked with Creative Carbon Scotland, having run a Museum of the Future Now session in collaboration with CCS for the Just Festival in 2020. Jo also designed and led a session for CCS on ‘Beautiful Disruptions; Radically Reimagining Approaches to Contested Landscapes’ together with artist Dr Kerry Morrison and academics Dr Tim Acott and Dr Eirini Sarats. They have work highlighted in the CCS Library of Creative Sustainability ;
