Why do the arts matter? What is it about arts projects that make a difference in the lives of vulnerable people? What is the value of the arts in these challenging political, social, cultural and educational spaces?

I am an arts practitioner working in socially engaged settings since 1994 in the UK and abroad. My practice encompasses dance and drama facilitation, project direction, arts evaluation, academic research and performance. Over the last 16 years, I have directed and facilitated long-term arts interventions which provide support for young refugees and vulnerable adults in the UK. More recent work includes evaluation and consultancy for arts organisations and evidence hubs.  My masters research explored the relationship between Care and applied arts interventions with trafficked women in London.

This website offers a focus for my journey towards understanding these questions around value of the arts with vulnerable individuals and communities.
