Wesley Freeman-Smith


Wesley is a writer, event producer and live arts facilitator. In 2017 he founded Colliding Lines to collect together disparate and diverse talents across long distances. The collective was incorporated as a nonprofit in 2020.

Wesley’s current creative projects include Catching Shadows, a spoken word and sound art band conducted long-distance with Theresa Elflein, Christina Kaniclidou and various other collaborators. He has appeared in print as both a journalist and poet, and mostly enjoys putting text and text-based things where they shouldn’t be.
