We were happy to welcome Jack Miguel for a weeks residency in April 2017 where he used his time with us to write and develop his project ‘The Turning of the Leaves’, a beautiful 21st century expression of the challenges facing men today amidst inherited narratives of power, violence and invulnerability.

“Ahh what a blessing my time at Joldwyns was! I am very grateful to Joldwyns for giving me the time and space needed to develop my ideas in such an inspiring setting. I really hope to be back soon.”
