Areas Of Interest
I continue to work in the Get Creative programme led by Creative Barking and Dagenham, exploring the role of artist-facilitators as cultural connectors. This initiative reflects my professional experience as a leader in directing and evaluating school/artist partnerships and collaborations.
This work is part of a long-term engagement in researching the role of the academic as cultural intermediary and broker of cross-sectoral networking and collaboration.
I also am developing networks with artists and academics with interests in working in arts-based research to address 'toxic' masculinity.
