Public engagement

I run projects in schools, community settings and training environments. The following briefly outlines my work in these contexts.  

Perfectly Mixed Up is an integrated company of Masters students and young care leavers. More than the Sum was performed at the Cohen New Works Festival in Austin, Texas in March 2013. My work with care leavers is part of the topic of the TedX talk I gave in June 2012.

Patchwork Stories is both a research project gathering stories provoked by simple questions and an installation of stories and mending. In May 2014 a group of staff and students from UT, Austin worked alongside drama postgraduate students and community members to create the first installation of the project. In May 2015 my return visit to UT, Austin will provide the setting for the second installation.

Altana Kulturstiftung is an art education organisation based in Frankfurt. I am one of a team of 5 artists and trainers who run an intensive Training the Trainers course for practicing artists of all disciplines. The course provides a framework for artists to explore creative collaboration with each other prior to leading collaborative arts projects in schools.
