Jessica Elouahbi Mallard, Offline Outreach & Support Manager


Studying Postcolonial Culture and Global Policy at MA gave Jessica the theoretical and historical knowledge with which to begin to start understanding the complex intersections which impact on each individual. As such, she has been working on community projects for the past five years, dedicated to valuing time, care and human connection in everything she works on.

Her previous projects have been with organisations such as FACT Liverpool, Manchester International Festival, Journey’s Festival International, Signal Film and Media, the Collegium for Language in a Changing Society and many more, as well as running her own project This Garden of Ours.

The This Garden group meets to explore the links between botany, power and migration whilst aiming to reap the benefits of both nature and art in natural settings across the North West. The group’s work also features a public facing program of exhibitions, talks and performances, as well as an informal peer mentor group sharing everything from seeds, growing tips and even daily good morning memes.
