My name is Julia Heslop and I am an artist and writer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. The potentials for deep participation in recreating the urban environment is the focus of my work. Previous writing has focused on gentrification processes in Newcastle upon Tyne, Communist and post-Communist architecture in Albania, Belarus and Russia and I am currently undertaking a PhD in Human Geography at Durham University which examines self build housing within conditions of austerity.
