Dr t s Beall is an American artist based in Dumfries and Glasgow, working with communities on durational projects to recover and highlight marginalised histories.

Her practice-led research developed engagement strategies through co-curated events and participatory performance.

For over a decade, Beall has worked with diverse communities to develop creative heritage and socially- engaged art projects in post-industrial urban environments, collaborating with under-represented communities in Govan (Glasgow), across Scotland, and internationally.
