Commissioned by Make Your Mark, Sussex Partnership's arts and health program this film promotes A Year of Drawing, a new year-long drawing project organised by Make Your Mark, will increase access to the arts for people facing mental health challenges and their carers through participatory drawing events across Sussex and Hampshire. I am also a lead artist on this project supported by a Peer Arts Worker (artist with lived experience of mental health challenges).
Photoworks have commissioned me to lead CPD workshop for teachers and youth workers with Dean Atta exploring LGBTQ+ issues in school and youth settings in response to Into The Outside which is a heritage-learning project led by Helen Cammock with local young people examining Brighton & Hove’s LGBTQ+ past and creating a new archive of queer youth experiences for the city.

This is a new year-long drawing project will increase access to the arts for people facing mental health challenges and their carers through participatory drawing events across Sussex and Hampshire.
