COMMENTS

“Interesting dynamics that promote deep listening and closer relationship of a group … a safe environment to express freely, dissolve in the landscape and in the words of others.”
EA (AADK, Spain workshop)

“To listen. Birds, voices from the distance, a machine, insects. A bell telling me, framing the time that is passing by … The discomfort of my body, the resistance of my mind, the perception of this dark space – sometimes expanded, sometimes reduced … Perceiving, being present, becoming sensitive to what is there, and in us.”
PS (AADK, Spain workshop)

“Thank you again for the workshop, I found it to be a really thought-provoking experience. The listening exercise in particular was very meditative, and I found that writing directly after that allowed me to collect my thoughts very easily and the writing I did then I was very pleased with.”
RG (AADK, Spain workshop)

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Mentoring and coaching:
I have worked with several artists to support their practice, including: critical feedback, project development and ideas for documentation or publishing formats.

Individuals and groups:
For many years, I have been leading workshops across the Arts that deal with fieldwork, survey, mapping, documentation and writing. These have taken place with individuals and groups in organisations and institutions; also, in a range of indoor and outdoor environments.

RGS Explore:
I previously coordinated workshop activities at the Royal Geographical Society for over a decade as part of the annual Explore: expedition and fieldwork planning event, held at the Society’s headquarters in London, UK. In 2018, I stepped down to focus activities in my practice and Andrew Ranville took over as organiser of the Artists in the Field workshop – more details of Explore can be found here. I am currently developing a series of 1-day workshops for artists working with geography as part of the main programme at the Society.
