Snapshots ending 2017 and a sneaky peek at projects in 2018

                               Walking San Pedro de Atacama, Chile 2017      

I have been working on several projects which will continue into 2018 including:

1. A commission with A.N.D. #my creative school 
I have been working with 10 artists selected by
A New Direction  (A.N.D.)

It has been a wonderful experience so far working with a talented group of people, bringing creativity into the delivery of the program. I am looking forward to 2018 when we will be delivering our catalyst projects in collaboration with our chosen schools.

My project is to develop a Creative Manifesto, through a Feast of Ideas.

A collaboration in "By Our own hand"a project with Richard Grayson at Matts Gallery. I have met some wonderfully creative artists and makers. 

'a mano' by hand.

it will be interesting to see how these all get put together.

In January 2018, The Horsebridge Centre in Whitstable is opening with a new approach to curating it's gallery spaces. 

Their first exhibition of the year curated by Mirka Kotulicova is titled 'LivingRoom' ands explores the idea that art is not and should not  always be comfortable. 

I will be exhibiting two pieces 'Cocoon' , a collaborative piece made with the Spanish artist Ignacio Cañete Sanchez and the second piece asks for participation on wall paper, 'Drawing Room' . 

The exhibition opens on the 13th of January.

In February 2018 Journey with The Waste Land opens at The Turner Contemporary and I'm looking forward to Walking with The Waste Land as a part of it. I hope that some of you can join us as we explore connections between Margate, TS Eliot's poem and the exhibition through walks that we devised over the last three years.

 We will be walking with our shamanic Varas (Poles) and taking you on our journey.

The Margate Bookie  also returns in May with a celebration of poetry.

I will be organising a walk with poetry titled Rhythm and Sway.

 In June  I am planning  a walk for the opening event of the Sculpture in the City Program 2018.

Hoping for some sunshine!

I am also organising a collaborative project as part of the Wandsworth Arts Festival Fringe, in May 2018 with Thread and Word.

A work with a focus on migration

 asylum / exile

I am enjoying the process, exploring  the connections between all these strands working and collaborating with different groups.Thanking them for all their support and friendship and looking forward to developing the ideas and connections further in 2018.
