honor ash (b. 1997) is an artist living and working in norwich, england. they are a member of ninetales collective, and run the monthly vending machine based artist residency programme special dispensations.

their practice centres around communication, power, language, community, and alienation. they work in a range of media, including performance, workshops and events, traditional and digital visual mediums, constructed environments, and publications. they have an ongoing photography practice documenting liminal space and human altered landscapes, which is collected under the title OUT/WITH.

since 2017, ash has produced events across comedy, performance art, live music and networking both in person and online, including the recent show & tell series of open forum workshops with ninetales collective. other collaborators include the university of east anglia, london queer artist network, 5:18 magazine, enterprise innovation solutions, 3 beetles, the association for performance art in berlin, and grüntaler 9.

currently they are focusing on interrogating the relationship between communities and scale in both online and offline contexts, as well as imagining kind and liberated futures and building sustainable ways for their irl community to engage with experimental music and performance. alongside this, with the white pube and geeks for social change, they are embarking on a mission to make the internet better for artists. more here.
