From November 2020 to July 2021, I was part The Turnpike’s professional development programme: Making of Us. The programme supported mid-career socially engaged artists, living and working in Greater Manchester.

As part of Making of Us, I worked in collaboration with Josie Hepplewhite, and students & staff at Bridge College (The Together Trust). Josie and I led a series of creative workshops, exploring; painting, monoprinting, collage, and performance. The results were presented as an exhibition at Bridge College. We also woked together to produce a DIY breakfast TV programme, in which the students star. They play various roles, such as; presenters, reporters, and a sea monster. Each student devised their own scenario and performed in front of a green screen using props.

More information about the programme can be found here.
