Commissioned Texts

Here are some reflective texts that have emerged from people close to us, who’ve collaborated with us in different capacities. These texts give some insights into the contexts and positions from which their authors are speaking; serve as a testimony of their lived experiences; and make a case for the urgencies around making these experiences public. In future, we hope to commission a series of texts each year, and also continue to contribute and collaborate on texts ourselves.
