Hello, hello, hello
How are you? So good to see you back here again listening. Today’s episode is short but full. Another part in the series of episodes exploring Dr. Sheree Mack’s relationship with Nature.
She explores here childhood in Bradford and Newburn, and how the seed of being a Flaneuse were sown.

Dr. Sheree Mack is the Project Coordinator for the National Heritage Lottery Funded project, Wayfinding: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Great Outdoors, where she works with Northumberland National Park Authority, Durham Wildlife Trust, the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, and Harehope Quarry Ltd. to offer opportunities to People of the Global Majority (PGM) communities in the North of England to spend time outdoors to develop and deepen their relationship with nature.

Sheree’s practice manifests through poetry, storytelling, image and the unfolding histories of black people. She engages audiences around black women’s voices and bodies, black feminism, ecology and memory and facilitates national and international creative workshops and retreats in the landscape, encouraging and supporting women on their journey of remembrance back to their authentic selves. She is currently writing a mixed-genre memoir around a black woman’s body with/in Nature.
