Work history
    Event Coordinator
    Freelance
    Within this role, working for the feminist women's mental health charity, Arts Sisterhood UK, I have undertaken a multitude of responsibilities and tasks in order to assist in the organisation and coordination of Arts Sisterhood's art therapy classes for female identifying, trans, and non-binary people across the UK. I have worked closely alongside the charity's founder and managing director, Ali Strick, in order to produce and run these monthly events in London, from our beginnings in 2016, through to our current tour of the UK, reaching to every major city across the UK. My responsibilities in this role include sourcing and transporting materials for the classes, social media management and promotion, event management, and volunteering at the classes themselves which includes welcoming and guiding our attendees through the evening, and making sure the events run smoothly.
    Project Manager
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    For six months I was a key member of the managerial team responsible for producing and organising the show "Look Here", an exhibition of over 40 Camberwell Illustration graduates’ work, which took place in July 2016 at Copeland Gallery in Peckham. I undertook responsibilities such as fundraising, managing the artists, organising and transporting the artwork, and working with the design / curation teams on constructing and delivering the visual identity for the show and it's accompanying publication. Futhermore, i undertook the crucial role of management, coordination, and collation of the editorial content for the accompanying ‘Look Here’ catalogue. I worked alongside the head designer in collaboration with the publishers at Camberwell Press, in order to produce a publication that reflected and encompassed the show's theme of 'Looking'; which involved taking this concept apart, sourcing practitioners, and delivering a brief for the written content.
