*Seeking to gain experience within London based community artists / community arts organisations*

I have been living in London for around 2 years but have only recently moved into the borough of Hackney (more specifically Stoke Newington).

Since moving to London I have been working in a creative marketing agency in Soho, however back where I'm originally from in Bolton I worked as a facilitator for a community arts agency for around 16months 2010-2012 and I now wish to pursue this career path once more as this is where my true passion lies.

The work I did in Bolton predominantly involved leading creative art, music and movement sessions for groups of up to 25 parents and children from 0-5 to model good parenting skills and make vulnerable and isolated individuals feel included within the community. I thoroughly enjoyed this work but would also be open to working with all age groups. I have also worked with young offenders in the past assisting with a summer arts college to help rehabilitate them and have also worked with groups of adults when teaching English in South Korea (utilising much of the same skill set as with my community arts work).

I would really like to become involved in the community arts in my local area and in London in general so if anyone has any projects they would like help with even on a voluntary basis please do get in touch!

Look forward to hearing from you,
