Hope Strickland is an artist filmmaker and researcher from Manchester, UK. Her current work is concerned with postcolonial ecologies and the bonds between resource extraction and racial violence; as well as the temporal fractures and intimacies that can be found in working across archival, digital and 16mm film practices. Hope’s PhD research at CREAM is a comparative exploration of the North of England and Cockpit County, Jamaica, examining maroon ecologies and fugitive dreams alongside the camera’s capacity to survey, track, and haunt.
