Speaking at Tate Liverpool

I was invited to speak at Edgehill University's Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice' Arts, Health and Wellbeing Symposium which took place at Tate Liverpool on November 27, 2015. My paper 'Reimagining Place and Space - The seaside as a Site of Community Repair' used the Isle of Thanet as its case study and offered an opportunity to share positive and counter-narratives orbiting the Isle's coastal communities. What proved moving and delightful was that our local stories and local events have clear and impactful resonance at the regional and national level.

 

Speaking at Tate Modern

The Fast Forward: Women in Photography Conference took place at Tate Modern on 6-7 November 2015. What a fantastic two-days of gathering and idea sharing. I had benefited from a week-long instagram 'takeover' of @womeninphoto as a warm up before presenting my paper: Discovering Presence - The Innovative Practices of Women Seaside Photographers. The conference was filmed and once available I will place a link here.
