Working as a social artist, as defined by Jean Houston.

“Social Artistry is the art of enhancing human capacities in the light of social complexity.
It seeks to bring new ways of thinking, being and doing to social challenges in the world.”

cultural narratives around women and what gets in the way of us being brave through a range of methodologies.

BRISTOL BRAVERY SCHOOL FOR WOMEN ~ Images from the exhibition ~ 2017

Portfolio image:
Bristol Bravery School for Women, Change the Story. This was a two-week residency at Jacobs Wells Baths, and then an exhibition at the Island, Bristol, in January 2017. During this residency I worked daily over a two-week period with 4 women artists, with an additional 3 other artists contributing. We worked with dialogue, journaling, movement, theatre and voicework, daily we explored questions around Women, Bravery and What Gets in Way? In collaboration with the Photography Dept at UWE we documented our studio time and created a series of stylised tableaux, both of which became part of an exhibition of images, displayed at the Island during the last week of January 2017, the exhibition then in turn, formed a backdrop to our live performance on the final day.
