I develop and produce arts activities and events within diverse communities in order to bring people together, explore social and environmental realities, enjoy creative processes and help to amplify under represented voices. Most of my projects and commissions are collaborative and cross many media.
I want to see a world where citizens have equal voices, are treated as experts in their neighbourhoods and are respectfully invited to participate in regeneration and change in our cities. A world where artists are valued for the way we innovate, adapt, reimagine, create and encourage others to do the same.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Anna. She has a real passion and energy. From concept through to completion she was well organised, had clear direction and was very motivational.Grace Kress ShelbyXStudios
Finding Common Ground is my latest collaboration. A collective of artists working in communities throughout Bristol have been exploring issues that link neighbourhoods and developing messages we’d like to share with authorities to improve social equality. We have been adapting activities for physical distancing restrictions and local priorities following the Covid-19 pandemic. Contact me to find out more

She has a wonderful way of finding the magical in the marginalised. If only every community had an Anna!”Professor Rachel Sara, Birmingham School of Architecture and Design
