I am Jamaican born and North London raised. An arts educator, consultant and trainer, specialising in work with enslavement history and anti- racism practice for Museum professional. I joined Metal in 2021. I have worked in arts related work, including art therapy, for over 45 years, deeply privileged to have engaged countless people from all walks of life in looking at art, making it, learning from and also sharing their hopes and expectations for arts organisations. An ongoing, though sporadic, arts practice, publications on art and therapy and an MA (with distinction) in Narrative Environments from Central St Martins (completed in 2019, aged 65!) add to my skills and resources. My favourite Metal experience was the Thames Estuary Festival. Being lashed with rain and wind on an open top bus between taking in exciting and inspiring installations and performances across venues heightened the unique experience. My favourite Album (at the moment) is Breadths by Sweet Honey in the Rock. Deep female inspiration that shores me up from the inside out. Art and activism in harmony.
