Transitions: Seen Unseen is an exhibition I have recently curated and will be touring around London from April 2019 until the end of August 2019. Find out more here. Look out for venue and dates soon...
One of the projects I managed has finally come to national broadcast! A four part series about poverty in Britain and can be seen through out May on the Community Channel. Finally my name in lights!
Gave my first paper on 'Curating the Personal: what problems arise in curating feminist maternal art practice?' at ProCreate's series of talks on Mother-Artists: Did We Become Our Own Audience?
Lots of food for thought, lots of Mother-Artists present!
Very excited to hear that the ProCreate Project is touring (and with it Cry over Spilt Milk) and is currently exhibiting at South Bank University as part of ə-books [at-books] a project space for material publishing.
Leila and I (and my left breast) made our debut on Channel 4 this evening!
We were extras in a small independent short film of poet Hollie McNish's poem "embarrassed" which aired on Channel 4. Having curated a small art exhibition about breastfeeding last year which included Hollie McNish's poem, I returned the favour and volunteered when Hollie had a call out for extras.
Hope Leila's not embarrassed when she's older - that would truly miss the point!

Greenbelt on the horizon
I'm featured in the recent Greenbelt film Nomads. You can also see some great shots of my volunteer team working with artist Joel Baker.
This film was made by Black Matter on location at Boughton House near Kettering at Greenbelt's first festival there in 2014. It features the voices of Pip Herbert (long-serving site vibing volunteer), Hilary Blake (Greenbelter), Rory Butler (returning singer-songwriter), Sekai Makoni (newbie Greenbelter), John Bell (Greenbelt institution), Ellie Rose (debutante singer-songwriter) and Grace Acton (visual arts programme coordinator).
