I produce arts activities and events within communities in order to bring people together, explore social and environmental realities, enjoy creative processes and help to amplify people’s voices. Most of my projects and commissions are collaborative and cross many media.
This video shows the community engagement phase of a recent commission, a large-scale public artwork for Elderberry Walk, Southmead, involving over 100 participants in art sessions to inform our design. Locals came up with ‘Strength in the Community’ as a positive phrase.
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 are currently adapting this for physical distancing restrictions following the Covid-19 pandemic. Contact me to find out more
It was an absolute pleasure working with Anna. She has a real passion and added energy to the project (Art within the Cracks). From concept through to completion she was well organised, had clear direction and was very motivational.Grace Kress, PAPER Arts CIC
