Developing grassroots arts and voice with communities
I’ve been working with creativity, communities, regeneration and history for roughly 25 years. Within that time, I have forged partnerships with local government, social care and health. Local community groups, arts organisations and education.
I have delivered multiple projects simultaneously, managing budgets of up to £300,000 and more. Working in Arts Management, Creative Producing, Inclusion and Voice and Influence I have often lecture in mentoring, ways of working, artist development, inclusion as well as voice and influence.
As a project manager, I have developed projects from conception, funding, strategic development, progression and legacy for a host of partners and services across the Southwest.
As an Artist and Facilitator, I have a very good understanding of the creative field, the needs of each partnership and the vital elements required to build relationships in unlikely places to bring about real change.
I am passionate about creatively, how we engage and direct or communities, culture and heritage and how we can create long lasting relationships with the arts/cultural and heritage sector.
