RhysReeceRees

RhysReeceRees are collaborative palavarists deeply concerned about quite a lot of things. Earnest in their tackling of big issues in little ways. Having worked together for some time they have recently galvanised around the ideas of the ecological economist Manfred Max Neef and his concept of fundamental human needs which provides an inspiring method for societal and economic change. They think he is quite important.

Ongoing projects include:

Background information:
Debbie Rees and Julian McKenny set up Blaenffos Permaculture Market Garden in 2009. Both are trained artists and created the umbrella project Vegetable Agenda (Where Art & Vegetables Meet) to encourage artists to engage with the working landscape, the environment and sustainable living. Residencies at the market garden, combining growing and art practice are offered and in July 2016 the work of fifteen international artists was exhibited in and around the half-built strawbale house on the theme of Basic Human Needs.
