Born in London/UK in 1995, based in London.

Mo Langmuir is a multi-disciplinary practitioner who uses social art to explore being human on a shared planet, broadening traditional Western science and knowledge-making systems to create ecological futures. Informed by a degree in BSc environmental biology from the University of Nottingham (2014–2018), her practice foregrounds process. After graduation, Langmuir worked in ecological research and artistic environmental education for projects in Nottingham/UK, Malta and the Caribbean. She now runs trauma-informed art and nature workshops for refugees, non-EU migrants and asylum seekers, connecting new arrivals to their new environments.

Some recent projects include a residency with Climate Art in Rye/UK (April-July 2021), co-creating an environmental history installation at Bridgepoint Arts Centre which highlighted the intimate relationship between people and their environment, subverting traditional museology and approaches to the classification of non-human nature. In October 2021, Langmuir was awarded the international Social Art Award third place prize by The Institute for Art and Innovation (IFAI) for her project Mapping Greenness (Nottingham). Earlier this year, she was selected to take part in an Arts Council initiative for schools to work with artists to evaluate the wider curriculum and encourage more curiosity and creativity in UK schools across disciplines.
