Jessica El Mal engages in a multidisciplinary practice through social interaction, critical and historical research, and speculative future imaginaries. Often centred around collaboration, co-curation and collective knowledge systems, her projects usually include research, workshops and artwork intended to have a lasting effect.

Previous projects have been with MIF (Manchester International Festival), Journey’s Festival International, Signal Film and Media and MAMA Rotterdam, as well as many collaborations with non-arts organizations too such as Manchester Central Library, Research Collegium for Language in Changing Society, Levinshulm Lets Keep Growing and many more.
