Sarah Cole and Annis Joslin work as social arts practitioners and educators, using video, drawing, sculpture, text and performance developed through conversations and activities with others.

They have been collaborating since 2018, when they were awarded a commission by People United to work with a small domestic abuse charity in Kent. The work they made, ‘Messy Business’, consists of six short videos (of which ‘Burn’ is one) exploring people’s lived experiences. You can hear more about their working processes on this podcast with Look Then Leap.
