Interests: I work with artists who are making new work in the public realm. This includes working with arts officers and organisations wishing to engage artists. I can research, curate, mentor, commission and assist in shaping projects, programmes, seminars in the contemporary arts. I’m interested in assisting the crafting of framework strategies for the integration of arts into area planning and building democracy through arts services.
