My name is Julia Heslop and I am an artist and a writer. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in Architecture at Newcastle University. The potentials for deep participation in (re)creating the urban realm, and in particular housing, are at the centre of my research and practice. My practice often takes the form of large scale architectural installations in urban space and I often work in collaborative, slow ways with groups and communities. In so doing I use my practice to ask important questions regarding land and property ownership, housing precarity, urban planning and local democracy.
