The Ukraine Crisis Appeal – A Charity Fundraiser for British Red Cross

I performed live in aid of the Ukraine Crisis on Saturday 25th November.

The humanitarian situation is increasingly dire and desperate. Millions of people have no safe place to call home. More than 2.5 million have already left Ukraine, while countless more are still trapped underground, taking cover from the shelling, and desperate for a safe escape. Red Cross teams have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and its bordering countries. But with recent freezing temperatures, and ongoing violence, an enormous number of people urgently need help right now.

Self, Sense, Space

A multi-sensory residency.

‘Art has no boundaries! It’s for Everybody! It’s got that Openness, Intention & Hope. And it doesn’t mater how you interpret it, how you hear it, feel it. It’s your own experience.’ 

This is how I see Art of every creative practice. Everyone is a contributor, whether from the creator’s perspective or from the side of the person who is just there to admire it. In December 2022 I went to Manchester, where I attended a residency organised by Brighter Sound.

We all met at the People’s History Museum. For a week we worked on building an installation, where people could be involved at all levels when visiting it. All the artists taking part were differently abled. The Self Sense Space Residency was an opportunity for artists from different creative practices to collaborate and explore accessibility from different points of view. We offered the visitors a chance to experience our work their own way, without expectation, prejudice or judgement. Did we make history on that cold December night? Maybe this was the start of opening the art world in all its forms to new, innovative, flexible ways to understand it.

 

SQUIRREL SESSIONS

I held monthly live streamed shows on my YouTube Channel during the Covid Pandemic, lasting approximately 30 minutes each. I called these shows ‘The Squirrel Sessions‘ in honour of my 2 furry squirrel toy mascots that joined me for every session and remind me that joy can always be found in the of smallest things. An important thing to remember in these times.
