    In 2019 I helped to co-found Freehold Projects, art space and collaborative group in Leeds. Our aim is to create a space which is accessible to people who otherwise would not attend galleries, as well as give recent graduates or people who otherwise would not get shows space to display their work. We are focused on it being a community space. Working as part of Freehold Projects I have carried out a variety of roles, detailed below but not limited to: • Planning of shows - this involves finding artists who want to use the space, and liaising with the artist. • As well as traditional gallery shows we have put together workshops ran by ourselves, and also outside artists. • As a trained photographer, I also document the exhibitions and events.
