About me

I am an emerging curator currently studying MA Curating & Collections at Chelsea College of Arts. I have a particular interest in visual communication, illustration and gallery education, and I am currently researching effective pedagogical models within arts museums, and their importance in contributing to an inclusive arts education. I am a campaigner for arts education. I organised the Leeds Arts Party in 2015, held at Leeds College of Art. It was inspired by Bob & Roberta Smith's 2014 Art Party in Scarborough and was attended by over 300 people. I am passionate about the arts, and accessibility to the experience of the arts for all.
