i offer my voice and experience to engage with the people, programme and organisations that effect our critical access to arts and culture //
As an Artist it is absolutely intrinsic to my work to fully engage with the social and political space the Arts occupy and the people it brings in/ leaves out. I bring my experiences to the ever expanding discourse around arts practice, the role of the arts, and the legacies of it. I push for more connected ways of working/participating across all levels of the arts sector/community. To hold exclusivity into account and dismantle discriminatory practice in creative spaces. To make room for free expression, authentic interaction and self-empowerment.
I am a member of various social change collectives and co-ops:
- ANTIUNIVERSITY Now! (Belarus Free Theatre / Arcola Theatre)
- Ice and Fire’s Actors For Human Rights Resident Artists
- Co-op member of DIY SPACE FOR LONDON.
I have worked across various organisations and venues in the UK in this capacity. From being an Artist Contributor to plenary discussions and workshop at Ovalhouse Theatre, to being a Youth Panelist for Arts Council England programmes including ‘Sustained Theatre’ and ‘Public Service Broadcasting’. Notably I worked as an Artist Advisor for Yorkshire’s ‘Artist’s Taking The Lead’ as part of the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
