Joss Allen can be found at the edges of the garden, amongst the weeds and compost heaps. He is an artworker and amateur gardener exploring how creative practices can shape earthy politics, community economies and ecological ways of being. His work has been influenced by his time as a support worker for adults with autism, a labourer on an organic farm and a refuse collector, among others. He recently co-ordinated a three-year community food growing project, Town is the Garden (2017–20), with Deveron Projects, Huntly, Scotland. Joss is currently Co-Artistic Director (maternity cover) and Alternative Economies Manager at ATLAS Arts, Skye.
