Engagement and participatory arts
I work with other Artists to devise creative content for programmes and events developing outreach models with partners across the community. I use creative content to build relationships, open conversation and provide opportunity for self-expression. Shared learning experiences can build strong bonds across a group of people where shared creative endeavour and participation can be a unifying experience creating common culture.
I work as lead artist to develop programmes of creative engagement for venues and arts organisations - devising profile-raising activities and managing online campaigns. I have created multiple partner programmes working to build audiences and ensure creative activities are made widely available. I work across the arts to organise public events, exhibitions, workshops and activities. I devise content to be fun and engaging inviting audiences to participate in numerous different ways and becoming central to the work. I write funding applications for my own organisations and on behalf of others to support art in participatory settings working with Schools, Venues, Councils and Consortia to ensure wide reach.
