I’m an ambitious and creative individual with a particular interest in creating community arts projects. Recent art projects have involved working with local homeless shelters such as Catching Lives and Porchlight. Here, I have been leading workshops to engage shelter users and to make the end results accessible to the wider public in the hope of creating a positive dialogue about homelessness I am very interested in the therapeutic benefits of creating art work, and am looking to study an MA in Art Therapy in the coming years. I’m currently seeking employment in the arts sector in London, in particular, involvement in community arts projects/ curation of art workshops and fundraising.
