Having studied graphic arts and design means our approach to working in the public can be different from a fine artist or live artist. I’m always drawn to work that has a performative element to it. I enjoy work that brings people together and allows them to think, talk and express themselves. I’m a big admirer of Jeremy Deller and Harrell Fletcher. I’m always looking at innovative ways to create work with the public.
To add another element to our work, I’m currently working as a freelance producer. I began working with Compass Live Art last year, gaining experience in all areas of creative producing. Now I’ve joined Flare International Festival of New Theatre in Manchester as their Creative Learning Manager. With Flare I’m creating and implementing a program of workshops with artists for community groups.
I’m keen to get more experience working closely with artists and organisations to commission and produce work.
