Gardens of Others with MADEYOULOOK
South African artist collaborative MADEYOULOOK invites you into deep listening to the recollections of various gardeners, activists, artists and writers of colour in Britain and South Africa as they share their personal experiences and memories of how they came into relationship with plant life and nature. They place these narratives within the wider historical contexts of migration and families of growers using gardening as a means of place-making, and maintaining connections to their ancestral homes.
