the beej garage

exploring the creative process

building a critical discourse around interdisciplinary arts practice


archiving individual methodologies, approaches and philosophies


bridging the gap between theory and practice


Work in the garage demands a conscious shedding of layers, taking apart to put back together, unlearning, building trust and creating a safe space to explore, dream, discover and/or be.
