Alongside my arts practice, I work as an educator in a variety of formal and informal settings. I am actively engaged in research into radical pedagogy and experimental methodology in teaching.
As an arts professional and educator, I believe arts education provides a much needed space for the development of ideas, communication skills, critical thinking, self-awareness, discourse and experimentation. I am committed to a holistic approach, where students are encouraged to develop sustainable practices and strategies for survival that take into account geo-socio-political concerns.
