A Creative Anthology and Blueprint for Holistic Change.
The Slow Grind: Finding Our Way Back to Creative Balance is a collection of essays, think pieces and conversations, gathering some of the most formidable voices across the cultural industries.
After selling out in 2020, The Slow Grind returns to print thanks to the award of a publishing grant from Mulberry England.
With insight from biotechnologists, activists and key cultural actors, The Slow Grind is an innovative anthology, representing the growing field of Intersectional Environmentalism. Driven by a commitment to socio-political change, through creative and community-oriented thinking, The Slow Grind positions conversations and writings at the juncture of environmental and social justice. This book explores larger questions that relate to the condition of our world, the makeup of our cultural industries and the future of our communities - human and non-human. This is an invitation. One that hopes to encourage the process of recovery through unlearning.
