I met Spare Tyre in 2013/2014 at one of their training workshops. I have been fortunate to have further exciting and challenging work through them. In 2014 in association with Spare Tyre and St Matthews Church Westminster I worked with a dancer and musician to create and facilitate a socially engaged participatory event for the Just Westminster Festival. The final event included a local over 50’s choir and poetry, music and artwork created, exhibited and performed by local residents in the Salvation Army hostel.
In 2016 I was lead artist on Spare Tyre’s Blue Skies project working with women escaping violence to develop creative thinking and image making. 2017-19 I have been the artist facilitator on their ‘Together‘ project in association with Jackson Lane working at the Haynes Day Centre for people living with dementia.
