I have always had a deep-rooted passion to help others, to enable, to include. It's part of who I am. In the arts projects I manage, coordinate and facilitate I have a simple message - everyone is welcome.
Whatever your age, health, background, ability - you are welcome. It is my job to ensure no-one is excluded from joining in and at whatever level is most comfortable.
Together we can find a way. Based on my experience and sheer determination when faced with a range of constraints, I assess the project and I will do my best to make it happen.
So if you have an arts project in mind and you want to engage - let's chat.
I cover workshops and arts projects around themes of:
Anti-bullying - Identity - Inclusion - Integration - Mental Health - Family Support - Climate Change - Green Energy - Mindfulness - Community - Confidence - Sustainabilty - and sometimes I get stuck into an arts project just for the love of it!
Here are some of the groups I worked with in the past:
Schools (At All Levels)
Disability Support Teams
Hospitals - All Departments
Pupil Referral Units
Family Support Programmes
And so many more
Below shows just a small example of the varied and rich arts projects I have project managed.
Workshops for Quad Derby 2022
QUAD is an international centre for engagement in contemporary art and film, based in Derby. I have been running creative workshops for Quad throughout 2002 these include:
Whole Staff Well-being
QUAD's vision is to be an arts and cultural venue in Derby that provides high quality contemporary art exhibitions, film and cinema, and integrated digital media work that is inspirational, innovative, supportive and inclusive. Quad provides creative participatory and learning opportunities for people in a safe and welcoming environment. Quad collaborates and works in partnership with others to deliver activities that make a positive impact on their lives.
I would like to thank all the participants who were involved in these varied and fantastic projects. Without your sense of adventure, pride and community spirit, these projects would not have been possible. Thank you for your time, commitment, patience, caring and goodwill.
