About Ian & Based Upon 

Based Upon travels the world to gather narratives memories textures and histories. In the London studio, these grow into sculptural works which look at notions of wholeness and separation, the natural and the manmade. These works tell stories of Based Upon's own experiences or of those of its clients. Each Based Upon work carries the intention of its maker: every piece resonating with the personal or the physical landscapes from which it is conceived.

About Wild Winter Wellness

‘Wild Winter Wellness’ is a month-long series of events and activations hosted by Coal Drops Yard and curated by BeBox, designed to help transform our perspective on winter, embrace the benefits of its elements and explore our inner world.

Studies show that at this time of year (often considered the most mentally and emotionally challenging time of year) we need more daylight and outdoor time as well as good human connection time to keep mental and physical stressors from our system.

Wild Winter Wellness contains gatherings, talks and breakthrough physical challenges to transform our physical, mental and emotional quality of life.
