Blue, purple and red seas

I am working with young people, artists, and geographers to prepare imagery that expresses young people’s ideas about Francis Drake, as well as facilitating discussions over a cuppa to co-produce material using this imagery as a basis. This interdisciplinary approach not only enriches the creative process but also adds depth and perspective to the storytelling.

Objects laid on a quadrant to represent where they fit into a landscape that is full of heritage and contemporary friction.

A Velvet History

I am collaborating with Tavistock Youth Cafe and The Tamar Valley National Landscape, with the support from the National Trust to explore Francis Drake’s home at Buckland Abbey. This partnership not only provides a valuable opportunity for young people to connect with their local heritage but also fosters a sense of ownership and leadership in exploring and interpreting the significance of figures like Drake.

Autism, climate change and anarchy

A group of us gained funding to co-create an event aimed to engage not only those who could no longer walk to The Reens - a woodland in Troon, Cornwall - but also targeted children and young people. The event comprised an outdoor workshop in Reens Wood and a gaming session in Troon Village Hall, both of which proved to be engaging and educational experiences.

Midsummer Butterfly Recording Day

On our annual butterfly-monitoring day at Loe Bar, the weather was hot due to a heatwave, with a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and a light southwesterly wind. The sky was mostly blue with some cumulus clouds. The tide was going out and was at a midway point. Due to the drought, there were brown patches of grass and the paths were very dry.
