I currently work as a casual Barbican Ambassador for The Barbican Centre where I go out into Waltham Forest and get a diverse range of people within the community involved in outreach events that The Barbican produces. I hand out fliers, work at festivals, attend masterclasses and community events, visit local businesses and help connect the areas of Leyton, Leytonstone, Walthamstow and Chingford with funding and educational opportunities. I also lead the social media campaign for the Ideas Kitchen project.
I won this award in the summer of 2016 after successfully pitching an idea for a nationwide tour of emerging artists. I received six months of personalized mentorship from the Southbank Centre.
