Co-Founder (The Old Post Office)
I co-founded The Old Post Office in Stirchley, a co-working space and community hub for those who work from home. This role includes project managing a refit of a shop unit, building relationships with local stakeholders and piloting programmes to explore how a community space can remain responsible to its surroundings - for example, by building a foodbank programme.
Project Manager (The Gathering)
A reference to the 1832 sketch ''The Gathering of The Unions'', a work created to demand the passing of the Reform Act (1832), The Gathering is a participatory visual arts project focusing on Birmingham's history within the union movement and cooperative movements.
The project will culminate in a piece of permanent sculpture which will document Birmingham's story within these movements, and question where unions are going in the future?
Next Gen Lead (The Nest)
The Nest is a project for developing artists within Worcestershire. It provides free desk space and mentoring support for artists aged 18-25, and works under the ethos of ensuring that artists are equipped for the creative sector by knowing their worth and having difficult conversations around money and boundaries.
