The Xref jury dinners were hosted in Los Angeles and San Jose last week and the results for HMC’s Xref travel fellowship are in—congrats to Los Angeles’ Nicole Dancel and Ontario’s Jonathan Orr!
Nicole’s Xref proposal, Another Dimension, will send her to Pula, Croatia to experience the Dimensions Music Festival, which is held at a 2000-year-old Roman amphitheater. She will observe and document the connection made between space and music, and draw connections on how this experience affects her perception of the world around her.

Jonathan’s Xref proposal, Inspired by Nature, will take him on an adventure to Southeast Asia to study the natural environment and document new sources of inspiration. He will travel to the Coral Triangle in Southeast Asia to embark on a multi-day diving expedition to explore the diversity of plant, vertebrate and invertebrate species. Next, he will continue on to Singapore to explore the integration of nature preserves in a dense urban fabric.
