Theodore (they/them) is a non-binary writer who explores what it means to be neurodivergence and queer in today’s society. They work with blending styles and expectations through free form poetry, twisted flash friction and digital art.
Ellenor (she/her) is an anti-establishment, queer writer and artist who pulls fiction and non-fiction alike from the histories of real places and people and explores the radical potential of queer love and self-expression through fashion and poetry.
The Life Changes Trust was established by The National Lottery Community Fund in April 2013 with a ten year endowment of £50 million to support transformational improvement in the quality of life, well-being, empowerment and inclusion of three key groups in Scotland: people living with dementia, unpaid carers of those with dementia and young people with care experience. The Trust concluded their ten year tenure in March 2022. Moniack Mhor is a formal legacy partner of the Life Changes Trust.
