Artist and workshop lead

I have over ten years experience of working collaboratively with people in institutions and community settings to create high quality artworks using video, photography, audio, mapping, GPS and programming tools. I have experience working with young people, adults and older people.

Film making workshops

As a workshop lead artist I have successfully planned and delivered projects working collaboratively with young people and adults to produce socially engaged projects. One such workshop was a Heritage Lottery Funded project at the Edgware Road area in London called Timeframe. The project involved working with young people to learn interview techniques, filmmaking, and editing skills to create a 30-minute documentary about the history of the local area. The students became informed of the history of the unique part of London first hand by the older member of the community. Through the project, they explored the social and political changes in the area and used filmmaking to document the process. I guided the team of facilitators and young people on how best to interview older members of the community about their experiences of the area and how to make a documentary. I edited all the material together the end to make the final film.

My most recent community project called Interlock, lasted eight months for the Barbican Centre working with community members. The project involved developing and delivering over forty workshops about the theme of Friendship creating small artworks using film and photography. The final artwork included a significant amount of collected material, which I edited and developed an installation environment using fourteen different videos and sound works to create a dynamic and interactive installation seen by over fifty thousand people

Creative coding workshops

I am currently running a community workshops for young people for A1 arts in Holborn, London. The workshop explores the fundamentals of computing and learning about physical computing tools, using sensors and cameras to detect people and then seeing those reactions in a live installation setting. Students are working towards making there own artwork using the skills they have learnt in the workshops.

Additionally I work for a company which teaches computing in a creative and fun way. My role involves planning and developing lesson plans which are taught to hundreds of students each school holiday and dedicated to creativity and coding camps approach learning through hands-on projects that capture children’s interests, exploring fashion, art and music, linking to programming code.

Animation Workshops

In previous workshops I have worked with several community groups and school to make animations using different craft materials, including recycled materials, live action and computer tools.

GPS Audio and Photo trails workshops

Between 2008-2010 I ran a series of workshops which involved sound recording, photography and mobile film making for FreqOut! A Vital Regeneration charity workshop. Project in the Edgware area and the Roundhouse in Camden. The workshops made use of latest mobile phones with basic cameras and GPS tracking for the first time.
