About me
I’m a London based curator/creative producer working primarily within visual arts and culture. I enjoy partnering with artists and cultural spaces, to deliver exhibitions, arts programmes and distinctive curatorial projects. I support individuals and organisations throughout the project delivery lifecycle, from ideation to completion. Previous collaborators include Neil Kenlock, Create Jobs, SXWKS, Rubric Initiative and St Margaret’s House. My two main aims are to produce work that provides respite from the day to day through celebration of art and culture and to ensure that this work is accessible to all. Delivering honest and boundary-breaking projects with like-minded individuals and communities, is where I have the most fun! Currently working towards an MA in Arts and Cultural Enterprise at Central Saint Martins, my final project explores fusing visual arts with other creative disciplines such as sound and spatial design to increase points of engagement in contemporary art spaces.

    London, United Kingdom
    MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise acknowledges that we live in a fast-changing, globalised world – one which presents a number of opportunities and challenges for cultural innovation. The course has been developed in response to an increasing need for multi-skilled individuals who can both generate ideas for events as well as provide leadership for the teams that realise them. The course offers insight into cultural policy and governance, an introduction to business skills and processes, as well as strategic planning. The course encourages radical thinking, based on creative research, analysis and a deep understanding of the cultural economy and its role in the wider economic, political and social environment in which it is located.
