I am a collaborative placemaker, arts consultant, writer, researcher, curator and project manager, specialising in visual arts and the urban built environment. 

I do all of this as I passionately believe in the arts in society, the citizen’s position as expert in their own place and their right to have their say in what it is like and how it is run; and in the power of creativity in all forms and by all people in the urban realm. 

Read my blog to see what I am up to currently; go to ‘what I do' for info on just that; ‘my work’ to see what I am working on and who I am working with; 'research' for the low-down on my current PhD research and academic life; ‘writing’ for all that is the written word on what I do; 'talks and training' for the portfolio of courses I offer; and 'contact/connect' to email me and see my Twitter, Instagram and Flickr offerings.
