Working on collaboratively on this project housed within the Wimbledon Space Gallery, London. An exploration of works that were selected from the prestigious LUX moving image archive. The aim was to investigate how the spontaneous can be constructed to create meaningful interactions. Selected works by the following artists: George Barber, Phillip Hoffman, Lis Rhodes, Guy Sherwin, John Smith, Wood and Harrison and James Richards.
Working with children has infinitely become my passion over the period of working here. I had become very interested in teaching and the perspective in which children take on. Here I spent a year working privately for a family in London taking care of three children ages 5-11. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
At the Camberwell College of the Arts and Wimbledon College of the Arts I took on a role in assisting workshops for underprivileged adolescents living in South London. The aim of the program is to get these kinds of people interested in undertaking Arts at a higher education level. We taught workshops and helped students put together portfolios for applications onto university programs. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this and helping students thrive was a key part of this.The program was held for three months in autumn 2014 and autumn 2015 whilst also teaching on an additional three week program in the summer school of 2015.
I have been volunteering on an irregular basis at The Photographer’s Gallery in London. I help organise and run drop in public workshops in the education department. The workshops are designed to cater for all age groups and are usually very busy. It is great talking to people who are interested in learning more about photography and helping people explore their inner creatives.
