Through heritage coordination with national and regional organisations and as freelance reminiscence facilitators for numerous clients, I have gathered many years of experience.
These include for Age Exchange and Brent Council, with the over 55s and young people to promote heritage and social history exhibitions though oral history recordings, intergenerational activities and reminiscence workshops, resulting in ‘memory quilts’, plays, interactive tea services and a heritage website to record memories of the way we used to live.
Previous projects include a partnership oral history project with Brighton Museum and WRVS, a four year project with English Heritage in their Community Outreach department, and experience on the Kingston based environmental arts charity Save the World.
Other work has been with Independent Lives charity on their Speaking up for Disability project, and QueenSpark Books in Brighton.
Having finished a Heritage Lottery Funded Lewes based project Ale and Hearty in 2014 about ale and brewing, I piloted a short term programme called Breaking Bread (2015) in Brighton, celebrating bread, baking and Sussex traditions related to this theme. I have worked on The Boys on the Plaque project, an HLF funded two year programme with Fabrica gallery and Brighton and Hove Libraries, and am currently working on a freelance contract with Polka Theatre in London as Heritage Manager.
