I work closely with the Pool Arts, an arts organisation in Manchester that supports artists facing barriers to their involvement in the arts and their continued practice, regularly helping in development of the organisation; mentoring individuals and contributing to curating and creative direction in exhibitions and other projects.
Pool Arts has exhibited in its own SHED gallery - a small garden shed on allotments in Manchester. They have also exhibited at The People's History Museum; Federation House - Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces; Horsfall @42nd Street and have held performances and film screening at HOME and Cornerhouse.
