Clare Qualmann

Clare is an artist/researcher whose work focuses on participatory, site specific, and experimental modes of contemporary creative practice. She was a founding member of the Walking Artists Network.  East End Jam is an ongoing artwork that celebrates the unexpected fruitfulness of the urban environment. Through walking, foraging, picking and preserving it instigates an active, activist and creative way to interact with a place in relation to their edibility. The project addresses challenges resulting from the UK context of austerity politics including food poverty, access to green spaces and social isolation.
