22.02.20 The Vaults
Together with Extinction Rebellion and Culture Declares Emergency I curated an late night playground in response to the planetary emergency. With over 80 artists performing across the night including; drag, circus, installation, dance, poetry, Dj sets and musicians.
This event not only raised money to continue to raise awareness of the climate emergency but it allowed diverse artists to be included due to the non-arrest-able nature of the event. This was an evening of outreach, regeneration and celebration in aid of the amazing work artists are doing to bring awareness and evoke rebellion within the many.

The Future is Here - October Rebellion
With a team of volunteers alongside myself I programmed one of the nine sites as part of the Autumn Rebellion in London.
As a site signifying soloutions and a positve future, we ensured to have talks throughout the day from specialists in their fields interspersed with poets and creatives responding to the emergency. This would then culminate in uplifting muscians to reward rebels for commiting to the cause.
Highlights of the week included; Comedy evening featuring Nish Kumar, Declan McKenna, Kate Rawles, Laura Lexx and George Monbiot.
Logistically this was the largest scale event I have ever programmed. We had something happening on the stage everyday for the first week from 10am-10pm.

I self produced and curated an evening of performance in the galleries of Art Number 23 alongside TOBY (Katy Higgins)
Presenting two new works A midsummer Touche and SCHEMA we produced a sold out run of performances. These were intimate evenings with a capacity of 50.
Toby explored an abstract representation of how the brain responds to music whilst my own work looked into the pursuit of happiness and the cliches that are embedded within our lives.

Exploring what it means to be a woman in the 21st century, I curated an evening of work featuring my work ‘Reclaim the word Slut!’, alongside new commissions by Kara Coffey, myself, Rachel Ni Bhraonain and Toby with graduates and students of London Studio Centre.
London Studio Centre’s heavily female cohort year after year produces incredible female talent; who are not only performing but creating, producing and being activists within the dance world. For one night only this group of fierce female choreographers ask you to question and destroy the social requirements of being a woman
