Delighted to present a talk on the subject of Arts & Wellbeing Practice at the Maker’s Fair held in the DIY Space for London, Sunday 12th May.

There will also be a zine making workshop presented by Lu Williams, a ‘Being an entrepreneur Artist and Maker in London’ talk by Tere Chad, plus makers stalls selling zines, illustrations, prints, ceramics, jewellery, and more.

The DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road, who offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social spaces, as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. DIY for London operates via a members’ club model so that everyone has an equal say in how the place is run. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated.

PAGES New Voices: A Gathering of Artists’ Books Tour

Unknown-1In February my Artist’s Book: ‘Sequence’ was acquired at the 22nd Annual International Contemporary Artists Book Fair held at the Tetley in Leeds and is part of the PAGES New Voices collection of Artists’ Books, which has started a short tour of three Yorkshire venues at the Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance (Below).

PAGES is coordinated by artists and researchers John McDowall and Chris Taylor. Founded in 1998 and operating around the hub of an annual Artists’ Book Fair, the initiative has provided numerous and wide-ranging opportunities for the development and awareness of the book as primary medium in art practice. Manifestations such as exhibitions, workshops, open calls and curated projects have facilitated experimentation, dissemination and engagement for audience and makers. In 2019 in association with the Fair’s host venue, TheTetley, and with the support of Arts Council England, PAGES has under taken a series of major new projects.
