Joss Allen

Joss Allen can be found at the edges of the garden, amongst the weeds and compost heaps. Joss is an artworker and amateur gardener exploring how creative practices can shape earthy politics, community economies and ecological ways of being in playful, radical, responsive and meaningful ways.

They are interested in collaborations across disciplines, peer education, storytelling and community building. Their work is influenced by time spent as a support worker for adults with autism, a labourer on an organic farm and a refuse collector, among others. Recently, Joss has worked as co-director of ATLAS Arts (maternity cover 2021–22) and project co-ordinator for Town is the Garden at Deveron Projects (2017–2020). They are currently a PhD candidate at the Institute for Global Sustainable Development, University of Warwick.
