Grace Whorrall-Campbell

Grace’s creative practice is informed by her work as an archivist and historian. She uses film, animation, writing and methods influenced by archival display and psychoanalysis to explore how we tell stories about the past and ourselves.

Grace has co-facilitated a workshop on Social Dreaming, and is interested in how collective dream sharing can provide a space for creativity and community building.

Grace’s work as an archivist involves a critical stance towards the collections, using creative interventions to cut across the overarching stories of collections, revealing subterranean stories and silenced perspectives.

She is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Cambridge on the interaction of work and psychological science in mid-twentieth century Britain, touching on themes of organised labour, mental health and disability, productivity politics and gender. Grace has published writing on sexualised labour and the emotions in twentieth-century Britain.
