- Ekphrasis: Poems from Paintings and Paintings from Poems This project was a second year History of Art module at Durham University entitled Gallery 101: Designing the Art Exhibition. The aim of the module was to create and market a hypothetical Fine Art exhibition. Summary description of exhibition: “Painting is poetry which is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen” - Leonardo da Vinci This exhibition aims to explore the fluid relationship between literary and visual artists. It will demonstrate the dynamic relationship between these areas of the arts, specifically through the consideration of paintings which have been inspired by poems, and poems inspired by paintings. The exhibition will be ordered chronologically, indicating the frequency of this creative reciprocity through time. Each work will be presented with its corresponding artwork to demonstrate the way in which different formats of art are primordial in inspiring a creative process. The exhibition will not focus on one specific artist/area of Art History, instead exploring those artists that have been inspired by others to create a dialogue traversing time and genre.
- Durham University Charity Fashion ShowThe Durham University Charity Fashion Show (DUCFS) is the largest student-led charitable event in the United Kingdom. In 2017, DUCFS raised £75,000 for the International Rescue Committee and their groundbreaking work in Syria. Now entering its 35th year, DUCFS will proudly support Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of people across the country. DUCFS is undoubtedly the highest profile and most popular event at Durham University, with 1,600 tickets to the 2017 show selling out in under 2 seconds. DUCFS requires the combined effort of over 19 executive committee members and 50 models to produce an event that is a true spectacle, showcasing up-and coming British designers and international talent. Yet it is more than a show, it is a brand and a movement. DUCFS is an initiative accomplished by combining mediums of art, fashion, music and performance with the goal of capturing an ever-changing youthful spirit. Throughout the year, DUCFS launches 5 pre-show club nights, press evenings, networking events, promotional shoots and videos, all to a collective social media reach of over 100,000 people. We’ve featured in publications such as Tatler and showcased brands who have graced the pages of Vogue, GQ and I-D magazine
Social Media & Marketing CoordinatorPalatinalps
- Durham, United KingdomPart Time
This was a voluntary role, I was part of a committee that ran the university ski trip for over 1500 students. I joined the committee after a competitive application process. My responsibilities included content creation and social media strategy as well as attending all general meetings and resort inspections and other related duties. I created a series of videos on Final Cut Pro X and was the photographer for all the events. I wanted to capture peoples imaginations with exciting footage as well as give out practical information. The marketing aspect of the role was in getting bums on seats so to speak and that speaks for itself in the fact that we sold 1500 tickets to the event which took place in the alps.
