The Oram Awards 2018: Hannah Catherine Jones
Hannah Catherine Jones is a London-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, researcher, radio presenter, composer, conductor, and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Jones is currently a DPhil scholar (AHRC) at Oxford University (The Ruskin/Christ Church) producing an ongoing body of audio-visual work, The Oweds, which explore ancestry, (cultural) reparations and concepts of totality (both in relation to ‘art’ and ‘blackness’) through an Afrofuturistic lens.
“I’m honoured and thrilled to have been selected as one of the winners of the Oram Award. The bursary will contribute to the maintenance of my artistic practice as Foxy Moron and help subsidise my community work with Peckham Chamber Orchestra which I have worked extremely hard to maintain over the past five years as free to join and free to spectate, pioneering female/non-binary, people of colour composers, conductors and players. I’m so grateful to have received recognition of work I am so passionate about and excited for the future.”
