As part of ‘LGBT+ LIFE!’ (a volunteer-led organisation that I am a founding member of), I curated, organised and promoted two exhibitions and several music, poetry and performance events during LGBT History Month in February 2023, at both Brixton Library, London and at Smithdown Social Arts Hub, Liverpool.
I assisted with the organisation, curation and marketing of the Visual Arts Programme for Threshold Festival from its inception in 2011 until 2021 (the festival’s tenth and final year). Threshold CIC is a grassroots organisation, committed to promoting local, national and international artists, musicians and performers. In 2013, working closely with Threshold directors, I became an established member of the core team and planning committee, and an ambassador of the festival. In 2021, due to Covid 19 restrictions, most of the festival content was presented digitally online in virtual galleries.
I organised a well-received exhibition for Liverpool Mental Health Festival in 2015. In 2017, I was promoted to a new curation role and helped the team coordinate and shortlist artists for the exhibition programme until 2019 when Liverpool Mental Health Consortium sadly closed.
I curated and organised exhibitions with HeadSpace@EggSpace from 2005 – 2015 at The Egg Café, a programme spanning over one hundred exhibitions in total. I worked with hundreds of artists in the process.
I have been managing and organising projects for over fifteen years, and as part of my work I have met, worked and liaised with several hundred local, national and international artists. I began coordinating exhibitions in 2001 across various locations and have organised numerous exhibitions since, including my first joint exhibition with two other artists in Viterbo, Italy – and several exhibitions in various venues in Cardiff.
My work with organising exhibitions includes installing and promoting exhibitions; finding, encouraging and recruiting new artists for shows; designing/updating promotional material and websites; social media and marketing; organising opening nights and private views, and sales/dealing with customers.
