Associate Lecturer on Fashion Art Direction at Manchester School of Art Freelance creative specialising in editorial layout, image making and film. Focused on community engagement within the arts, cultural and third sector, providing digital and creative campaign workshops to young people.
As Creative Director of Love For The Streets, I create campaigns that care and dare to be different. I produce a range of online media that focuses on youth engagement and social issues. We utilise our social channels to create calls for action for young people to assist grassroots organisations through volunteering and issue awareness. Our platform is power by our generation, for future generations. Youth engagement is at the core of our organisation. Part of my role is to facilitate creative campaigning workshops with youth groups, charities and organisations. Our creative campaigning workshops look at the art of activism and show participants how to use online media and offline engagement to get their message out there. We speak to young people in the community about setting up their own social enterprise and how they can share their skills to help others. Past collaborations include the Whitworth Young Contemporaries and the Edmund Rice Network. As part of our community work we assist grassroots homeless charities in Manchester. Here, I organise and facilitate community based art workshops, performances, and events to support and give equal opportunity to those with lived experiences of homelessness.
