Curating-General Overview

Curating events, festival and exhibitions is a new found passion. In 2014 I co-curated the Flamenko Coventry Festival and in April 2015 Romani Week. As part of the 2015 festival, I teamed up with photographer Antony Weir for the “Family Matters/Chestiuni de familie” Romani Photo Exhibition. The exhibition leaflet  Family_Matters_Leaflet  gives you some backstory on the project. The event would not have been possible without the support of the Roma Project and the various families.

In May 2015 I worked with Jane Ball to curate  the Visualising Relationships Exhibition as part of the Body^Space^Object Symposium held at C-DaRE in the UK. This exhibition and symposium considered how performative and material practices have articulated the embodied nature of memory and sentiment in relation to objects and space. Where is the common ground between dance and visual art? Does this common ground create a radical space for new thinking, making, performing and writing? How can the different ideas and practices of dance and art add richness to an understanding of memory, sentiment, body, space and object?

I am excited to  keep pursuing this new found love and bringing people together to create work and share it with others.
