Co-creator of festival of creativity and the street
Director of creative festival of community and the street. Based in the streets of Govanhill, Glasgow, the May weekend festival celebrates cultural diversity and creativity of the local area. Activities and events are from an open call for submissions/offered by partnership local organisations, offering a much needed platform for local projects and creative practitioners to share outcomes and creative works with the wider community and for people of all ages and backgrounds to mix socially, creating a welcome feel in the streets of Govanhill.
Creative producer of STREETLAND 2010, the inaugural festival, working in partnership with Govanhill Baths Community Trust, Southside Studios and WALD residents group. Festival has since developed into a constituted voluntary organisation through collaboration with Alex Wilde (artist) and Tom Warren (architect), with a voluntary delivery team working in partnership with local organisations, groups and individuals. Activities are free, ranging across fields of art, music, poetry, performance, gardening, re and up-cycling, creative workshops, with community and pop up cafes.
