Are you an established or emerging Artist, Creative Practitioner or Project Manager looking for a new direction or to deepen into your practice?

My consultancy service will give you time and space, through conversation and creativity, to help you understand your next steps

I have over a decade of experience as a freelance Community Artist. I’m regularly approached by individual practitioners and organisations for support, advice and guidance on developing participatory arts engagement programmes. My particular expertise in running creative projects in collaboration with people, exploring environmental, place-based and heritage themes through the arts

During my career journey, I’ve worked across every stage of arts engagement projects – from generating collaborative ideas and fundraising, to recruiting a team and creating safe supportive spaces, through to evaluation. I’ve developed this experience as a freelancer, founder/director of a not-for-profit company and governance roles on strategic boards

Suggested topics or themes that we could explore together include:

  • Community and participatory arts
  • Working with environmentally sustainable materials
  • Project evaluation
  • Social media and marketing
  • Developing a freelance career
  • Fundraising and budget writing
  • Project management
  • Safe, equitable collaborations

I’m offering 1-2-1 consultancy sessions for emerging and experienced practitioners alike. If you’d like to draw upon my experience to guide or support your work, this is my suggested format:

  • Initial Zoom chat to meet and explore overall themes (30 mins)
  • 1-2-1 consultancy session at a mutually suitable location, perhaps outdoors! (1.5 hours)
  • Follow-up recommendations

If you’d like to make an enquiry about this offering, to book in a meeting or discuss a bespoke option, please get in touch via email: This service is offered on a sliding scale cost and I’m open to mutual exchanged-based ways of working together, such as swapping time or skills

For your reassurance, I access my own supervision support, hold up-to-date insurance and DBS checks
