Biography

Following a professional life working nationally and internationally in the contemporary arts, my focus now is on horticultural and environmental projects in south-east London. Experience in arts, business and civic engagement informs my approach. I have published books about my work at two arts organisations: Clayground Collective, specialists in clay and public engagement, and the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT), commissioners and presenters of contemporary performance from around the world. Speaking engagements and advisory roles take me around the UK and to Europe. Subjects range from the significance of hand skills and making in today's world, to community fundraising and the role of the arts in social adaptation. My publications include: Clay in Common, a project book for schools, museums, galleries, libraries, and artists and clay activists everywhere, co-written with Duncan Hooson; and Changing the Performance, A Companion Guide to Arts, Business and Civic Engagement (Routledge, 2006) in association with NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts).
