Regeneration through culture: building spaces for community projects
Contemporary art performance MA student at The Royal College of art my performance work explores personal and communal rituals, exploring how neurotic behaviour can be explored for catharsis in relation to Trauma and mental health.
I have been working as an Electronic Note Taker and support Worker for disabled students for the last three years at Wolverhampton, Birmingham University and recently London City University. I have an OCN level 2 qualification for support-work and experience of providing this support to MA art students during lectures and exhibitions, as-well as one -one dissertation work.
As Assistant curator and director at ‘The Asylum Art Gallery and Studios’ I have facilitated artists for two years to develop their work into a collection for the exhibition space, including personal portfolio development, statements, marketing and promotion and supporting the deliverance of their event.
With a priority to engage local communities in regeneration through exploration of current and local interests and grievances politically within the framework of the social model of disability. It is the world’s social structure that makes us disabled.
