How did you come up with the idea for this charm?
I’ve always loved slugs. They seem to bridge different worlds. Hermaphrodites with hypnotic mating rituals.
What Charity did you choose and why?
Southall Black Sisters. I’ve worked with them for a while. Run by the formidable Pragna Patel they do both fundamental frontline work, providing shelter, support, legal aid, and also broader campaigning and lobbying which effectively resulted in significant legal and constitutional changes.
Last movie you saw?
The Psychic by Lucio Fulci, an italian 70s horror.
Family, nature and aliveness.
What superpower do you have?
To get back up.
Which word do you most overuse?
First thing you do when you wake up?
Try and remember where I am, have a cup of coffee.
An encounter with a stranger?
Always. Once a day at least.
What is colour?
