Project spotlight

Hastings Digital Quilt was a community art project run over two years, working with illustrator Carissa Tanton and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. Find out more here.

I commissioned Carissa Tanton to turn a painting in the museum’s collection into an illustration with simpler colours and shapes than the original. We divided her illustration into 200 squares, working closely together to make sure there was enough variety for someone to tackle in each square. We then shared these with the community to recreate however they wished. Some were made by creative professionals, some by children, some by school groups, some by the older residents of Hastings and beyond.

At Chirk Castle, a National Trust property on the border of Wales and England, I worked with three different artists to develop and evaluate new ways of storytelling. Find out more here.

I commissioned new work from a theatre company, an illustrator and a digital artist to create three original pieces of work – a board game, a piece of dark, interactive theatre and a silent film that was projected on the dungeon wall. I created the briefs and worked closely with each artist to develop the creative work into a unique piece of storytelling.
