Work history

Facilitator

Firstsite

May 2015
  • Since joining the Young Art Community (YAK) in 2015 I’ve since worked with the Learning department on a variety of projects around the gallery. For example facilitating half-term workshops for children, writing and performing an interactive foley performance (which has since been invited to Latitude Festival) and running the Digital Factory Residency in partnership with the Andy Warhol: Artists Rooms Exhibition. I run workshops for schools, organise monthly 'Float' digital artwork events and I'm also taking a large role in the organisation of our exhibition in October - where the YAK group will take over the whole building for the whole month with a series of events, workshops and installations.

  • Alongside being a high performing sales specialist and delivering exemplary customer focus, I was a valued member of the visuals team. This would include simple cable tidying tasks, to overnight shifts changing the window displays. I was also voted, by my peers, onto the employee forum. I acted as another voice between the staff and the management, both at a store and company-wide level (representing the store on a national level at the UK employee forum). With my creative industry (specifically pro-audio) experience, I became the go-to-guy for all music interactions in-store. I even went on to perform Logic Pro workshops to staff wanting to increase their knowledge base.
