Curator’s Areas of Interest:

I am a curator who is particularly interested in interdisciplinary performance work, live-art, performance lectures, poetry, spoken word, audio and theatre. These performance types can be interdisciplinary and playfully interact or not. I enjoy producing group performance events that are a platform for different types of performances to be in dialog with one another. As a woman artist with a disability, I am interested in artists from minority or oppressed backgrounds who are interested in exploring their experiences. I do a lot of work and research around access and inclusion in the arts for people with disabilities and I am interested in exploring this as a topic to encourage galleries and the public to be more aware and inclusive in their practices and lives.
