  • The unstoppable Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan have been offered a season and residency at the prestigious Battersea Arts Centre in London, and because they're special members of our Q whānau we want to help them get there! We asked Julia to tell us about her inspiration for creating this work, and what it means in 2018 a year after it was first created.
