Collaborating with local communities as well as seeding and growing new communities is deeply important to me. I grew up in a small village and have always been volunteering or involved in the community in some way. This has evolved and expanded over time into facilitating skills-based workshops, outreach projects and co-founding collectives inspired by a common purpose.
Below are some of the community projects I have facilitated or been involved in. You can find out more about my projects local to Bristol on the blog I kept while working with the arts charity Knowle West Media Center. Recently I have been most fired up by the collectives I am engaged with - particularly the Thelonious Collective from which we have seeded Becoming Earthly. This has evolved and grown over the past year, the fruit of which will be a creative residency in 2022.
