Street Arts (2010 - ongoing)
As one of the Associate Artists affiliated with WHALE Arts Agency in Edinburgh I have been involved in their Street Arts outreach programme since 2010.
Sessions typically take place on a Thursday evening from 5 till 8 pm at several sites in the local area. Associate Artists work on a rotating basis with a Team Leader and a Youth Worker to deliver high-impact, low cost arts activities for young people in the area. The sessions that I have designed and facilitated myself have included drawing, making, audio work and performance based activities.
I have found this to be an incredibly rewarding project to work upon and really enjoy the speed and energy of these workshop sessions. I never cease to be amazed and enthralled by the imaginative and stimulating nature of the responses of the young people of this community to the material we bring to them.
