CoLab Wakefield 

Iniva, London. 

2022 - 23

Producing You Can't Ignore Us, a youth-led project created by young people from Castleford for CoLab Wakefield.  We explored how museums and galleries don't always represent their lives, passions and interests.  

Students (aged 13 & 14) from Castleford Academy collaborated with Leeds based spoken word artist/writer Simone Yasmin and art therapist Will Jones to create an exhibition and zine. The group used collage, song lyrics, drawing, BSL sign language and more to express how they feel about the issues that matter to them. View the zine here


A slap in the face 

Lakeside Arts 

2022 - 23

Initiating and producing a creative consultation project & internal report about why Lakeside Arts does not engage and involve people of colour across Nottingham?  Members of Inspire Urself Carnival Troupe (aged 20+) worked with artist Honey Williams to create their own zine to express their impressions, feedback and ideas for how the organisation should connect and collaborate with diverse communities.

Beam - Arts for people and places

2022 - 23

Researching and writing a report informed by Beam's diversity monitoring, they wanted to ask - 'How can we make the public art sector more fair and equitable?' Over a period of 9 months I conducted a series of online interviews with under-represented artist and arts organisations creating art in public spaces or community settings.  The report aims to address why commissioning opportunities in public art do not seem to attract diverse artists from different backgrounds. Download the report.
