This essay is the product of thinking, researching and singing lullabies. As a practitioner-researcher in Hubbub, Holly Pester led a series of workshops that experimentally and collaboratively explored lullabies through conversation and improvised song. This led to an expanded project where Holly invited artists and musicians to collaborate on a col-lection of new lullabies, created through friendship and improvisation.
The thoughts and provocations within this chapter represent the politics and ideas that have motivated this project.
