Performances/Engagements

Always keen to tell stories and play with different ways of knowing, Helena continues to expand her technical and conceptual practices. She has exhibited video work at the Feminist Media Studio and recently composed a soundscape for Echos and Reflections: A co-located audio mapping exchange hosted by the Centre for Mobilities Research at Lancaster University. Her poetry/fiction have appeared in Grain and On Spec magazines, and she is preparing to be a mentor with Alt/Space/Control: Vancouver Housing Stories (collaborative radio and documentary arts project) hosted by VIVO Media Arts
