Contemporary Arts Society / Acts of Devotion

I was commissioned by the Contemporary Arts Society, to give a talk about the Shell Grotto in Margate in September 2018.

The talk took the form of an alternative tour of the Grotto and each of the group was given a map and a bracelet of shell and chalk.

Open School East

I had the pleasure of working with the Open School East associates on the 16th June. The group are preparing for a project inspired by the subterranean. This was a chance to talk with them about my research and to share resources. 

AAG

In April 2017 I travelled to Boston to take part in the American Association of Geographers conference. In collaboration with Prof. Harriet Hawkins, I presented a printed silk banner as part of a session titled 'Voids' whilst Harriet delivered a talk.

In addition to this I travelled to Ape Cave, a lava tube in Washington State.
