Iryna Zamuruieva / Elliot Hurst


Iryna Zamuruieva is an artist and cultural geographer. She works and walks across socially/ecologically engaged arts, co-creating experimental spaces for engaging with the more-than-human worlds. Most recently she’s been working on community led climate change adaptation in Scotland and investigating transformational creative practices (with a sustainability knowledge broker Sniffer), exploring non-hierarchical care structures (with Autonomous Care Unit collective) and curating a response structure for practicing careful pig-human relations (with the Pig Response Project). On occasion, Iryna can also be found writing, curating and photographing. Originally from a town in the middle of the Ukrainian steppe, Iryna is now living and working by the Scottish part of the North Sea coast.

Elliot Hurst is a researcher and facilitator, committed to multispecies anticolonial justice, and finding (expanding) the cracks in racist, capitalist patriarchal hegemony. His academic research focuses on water as a connective fluid sustaining social and ecological worlds. He is interested in creative research practices that engage in speculative world-making. Elliot grew up on a small farm in Aotearoa/New Zealand, on stolen Ngati Awa land, amongst ponds, sheep, cows, trees, eels etc. He is also involved in climate justice struggles and loves swimming, piano playing and food making.
