I have been working within gallery education and engagement roles/ projects with Schools, youth groups and adult communities as a producer and photographic artist for the past 9 years. Whilst working as a facilitator in many instances, often the work produced has inspired the collaborative approaches to my overall artistic practice and continue working in this way with others to support art as a tool for social change.
Examples of projects have included:
Digital Ambassadors (2016 - on-going) Photographic artist, part of FACT’s older People’s learning programme working with lens based media (from alternative processes to digital) & re-animating archival footage.
Collaborative Glitches (2016 - 2017) Glitch digital media workshops with older communities across Greater Manchester and Merseyside
Producer and artist facilitator for Many Hands Craft Collective and residents of Victoria Square, Northwards Housing Association, Ancoats (2012 - Current, part of Northern Art Carbooty programme and independent)
Creative Cargo (2015) Cyanotype and print based workshops with young people across North Glasgow as part of Creative Cargo, Glasgow Sculpture Studios programme
This land is your land (2009-10) : Artist in residence with Drummore Primary School, part of education and outreach programme with CCA, Glasgow
START, part of Centre for Chinese Arts Centre 3 year Schools programme, Manchester (2011-2014)
