I am a practitioner with 9 years experience in socially engaged practice as both artist & curator. Working predominantly in photography, video & textiles my work has been supported through various G4A projects, including UK wide “allotment diaries” & featured in A-N magazine & later exhibited in a survey exhibition of new socially engaged environmental practice at Reading University. I have also recently completed a major photographic artist residency with Mersey Ferries, with a cross site exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool and Open Eye Gallery. I have also exhibited in art spaces such as QUAD (Derby) & CCA Glasgow and FutureEverything (Manchester).
My work focuses on the relationship between analogue and digital technologies and how through collaboration and conversation co-authored works with community can be explored. My curatorial / producer experience spans over institutional roles, Communities Curator at FACT, Programme & Engagement at CFCCA & GSS, & currently head of engagement at Open Eye Gallery & curatorial agency wewioraprojects.
