Jenny Cameron along with her colleagues Katherine Gibson and Stephen Healy (from Western Sydney University) and Wendy Harcourt (from the International Institute of Social Studies, The Hague) has been awarded a prestigious Antipode Foundation Scholar-Activist Project Award. There were 116 applications from around the globe, and only 6 projects funded (a 5% success rate!).
Jenny’s project is entitled “Re-drawing the Economy: Creating Place-Based Images That Can Travel”. It will involve researchers, artists and community activists working on images that will communicate economic diversity across a range of cultures. Jenny will be travelling to Finland in April 2017 to run workshops with the Finnish translators of her co-authored book Take Back the Economy, and with Finnish community activists and Kathrin Böhm, a German artist now living in London. Other workshops will be conducted in South Korea (involving the South Korean translators of Take Back the Economy) and Colombia (involving the Spanish translators of Take Back the Economy).
