Working as an arts practitioner using photography as a method of engagement at the 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning gallery in South London, I use the arts as a mode to engage young people in re thinking their sociological positioning. I lecture Multimedia in a community college and I am also at the early stages of developing "Creative Insights", a social enterprise which seeks to provide creative services in print photography, and new media, whilst serveing as a creative hub for skills and ideas whilst providing true creative experiences to young people locally and globally.
Exhibit change by:
Using the arts, primarily new media and photography to engage marginalized young people, through processes of identity, culture, education, skill development, and confidence recognition and articulation. As they create and display their own their own voices visually.
I'm passionate about:
Young people - the way they recognize themselves and the pixels that make up their images.
