August- October 2019, Art Facilitator, Radical Reads Workshops, Contact Theatre
Supporting a group of young artists to create their own illustrative work for a new poetry book on Peterloo. Presenting a range of art methods such as mono printing, Lino printing, digital and more, the young artists learnt new ways of creating.


October 2019, Art Facilitator, Zine Making Workshop with Women’s Footprints Group, Ardwick
Leading a zine making workshop for the Women’s Footprints Group. They created mini zines using story telling prompts.


June-October 2019, Creative Producer Intern, The Horsfall
This internship was a brilliant opportunity to work with the Creative Agents at The Horsfall on the Alone Together project. Alone Together focussed on youth loneliness and explored how to feel different about being on your own. This role involved supporting the group to look at this theme and how they would present it artistically in the form of a room. This took place in the Horsfall Gallery and included a launch night with performances. To find out more about this project have a look here


July 2019, Art Facilitator, Empathy Day workshops, Oldham Library
For Empathy Day 2019, I delivered several zine making workshops with groups on behalf of Oldham Library. During the session, workshop members created mini autobiographical zines (magazines).


April 2019, Arts Facilitator, Sci-fi Day @ Oldham Library
On 27 April, I ran a two hour workshop, making sci-if mini zines at Oldham Library. This was a drop in session that engaged eight young people and supporting them to make their own mini zines.


Drawn Poorly
Since November 2017, I’ve run Drawn Poorly, an arts project providing engagement opportunities which focus on living with chronic illness, disability and mental health conditions. In addition to running arts workshops, I have produced four collaborative zines featuring artists and writers from all over the world and produced a performance evening, giving four artists opportunity to respond to the theme of societal barriers. Since the project started, I have supported 72 creatives to present their work. The project is also supported by the Future Fires Programme at Contact Theatre.
