The Future and Walking Women

25th April 2017

Exciting news!

AltMFA, the alternative art education group/collective I am part of, has been awarded a-n funding! We decided in these turbulent times to take a theme looking at the future. The bursary will help us to tighten up our programme, pay visiting speakers, gather and make use of information and knowledge more usefully and make it easier to share our learning with the public. We are very thankful and grateful to a-n. More details here.

Making walking women artists visible! Following last year's Walking Women festival at Somerset House (where I presented my Tapping Into The City project), the organisers were invited to create a study room guide for the Live Art Development Agency. The launch is this evening. I'm very excited to have a small part in this, and will be speaking briefly about my work along with many other artists. Details here.
