?CrowningIlluminate explores the question ‘what are our riches?’ –  what we consider to be our riches and the communities, families and strangers we share these with. Through one to one participatory occurance, illuminate seeks to offer a space and arena where audiences can withdraw to reflect and contemplate and to feel honoured. Using copper crowns inscribed with participants words, an exchange is called upon through the chanting of questions, the touch of a hand and a moment of meeting

Would you be willing to share these meaningful things with a stranger?

These conductive-copper, thinking crowns have been inscribed by artists, teachers, lawyers, parents, brothers, sisters and being alike – with words that are alive, words that are in movement, who’s exchange is for free and for freedom
