jorvn jones is an artist, writer, performer, composer, dancer and auteur who works across cultures to explore evolving masculinities, including third gender, non-binary, ‘in spandula’ and ‘iiS’. His (Y’all) work is personal and poetic, and iiS.

In this video jorvn discusses getting a “head start on social distancing” because of his lived experience of being in “a mental asylum”, immediately prior to the COVID19 lockdown in 2020. He discusses how an artist deals with times of crises, mental health, and isolation – and how continuing to MAKE –  ‘got me through’.
