Lenn Cox

Lenn Cox is a community organizer, designer, educator, programme maker and karateka. Graduated in 2020 from the ArtEZ MA Practice Held in Common, where she initiated and co-created the manual Collective Wandering: Hanging Out with Our Everyday Ecology.

Cox explores solidarity economies by immersing herself in self-organised learning-working-living environments while ritualizing her clothing as a logbook. Fashion, for Cox, is an embodied and relational practice rooted in everyday life. As educator and community organizer she initiates spaces and projects that facilitate collective learning.

Cox initiated in 2019 the z o m e r k a m p collective in which she explores and practices what it means to have a collective practice at this moment in time. As linen steward, Lenn learned how to grow, process and craft with a group our everyday textiles and garments by hand, with commoning as a guiding principle.

Cox lives in Arnhem (the Netherlands) and works wandering.
