I believe …

….communities can thrive by having access to high quality local artists with the right community work skills and knowledge, to support them in becoming stronger and more independent.  
I can work with your organisation, school or group on all aspects of collective project development – from  project design and curation, with funding applications, workshops, artist contracts right through to community coordination,  youth and community work, project management and evaluation.
