Creative Director of a http://www.interanima.co.uk/. A community interest company undertaking art interventions in Penryn Cornwall.
Projects include :
Re imagine Your Town
Re-Imagine Your Town began by turning a vacant shop in the heart of Penryn into a pop up Re-imagine your town workshop space,. Here residents began to create an interactive map and archive of their town’s past, present and future. This project led on to a funded PhD at Pymouth University .
My hope is that my current research will underpin future participatory mapping projects and inform how i use technology as a tool for facilitation
The Rynzine began as a pilot, led by myself and made by a few residents of Penryn / With the first issue over 20 volunteers delivered a total of 3400 copies in 2 wks to almost every household in Penryn.
This first issue of Rynzine was an invitation to residents of Penryn to share ideas and information. In these times of climate crisis, lack of affordable housing, and the increasing gap between those who have too much and those who do not have enough, residents need to come together to build community resilience. Projects such as Rynzine can help to develop solutions to global problems through local action.
The 2nd Issue is in development
