Here are some of my current projects and freelance roles
Live Art Desk Scheme
From March 2023 I will be a resident writer at LADA in Bethnal Green. My research and writing looks at the work of artists who have used physical limitations and health challenges as material for performance. I’ll consider sickness, disability and end of life issues as sites of enquiry, exploring the nature and narration of embodiment, subjectivity and modes of care. My new collection of essays will also be informed by interviews with artists and bodyworkers.
I assist with the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s ongoing creative programme at Tessa Jowell Health Centre in South London. The multi-faceted initiative aims to support a community-based and holistic approach to wellbeing that embeds art in healthcare. The project includes new artistic commissions at the Centre, training programmes for staff and a series of free workshops delivered by creative partners including City of London Sinfonia and Siobhan Davies Studio.
This Royal Society of Edinburgh-funded Network is called COVID as Catalyst for Writing and Discussing Death, Dying and Grief through Objects, Diaries and Collective Archives.The Network is developing and supporting 30 Scotland-based writers from across disciplines and genres to write and publish powerful, accessible work. I’m participating in the project as a research assistant and am developing a Network website to serve as an archive and resource.
