Recent Work:

Clients from Headway Cambridgeshire have commissioned me to assist in developing, fundraising and delivering the project including managing the community interpretation of the research.  The project will culminate in illustration students creating bus posters inspired by the research; secondary schools students developing a performance, a radio programme on the local community radio station, a film and a publication.
