Using sound to reimagine stories about people, places and objects


I’ve been very fortunate to have been selected to take part in some brilliant residencies both in the UK and abroad – here are just a few!

The Art House: The Quips


The Quips compares pirate radio’s history of rebellion and activism, with current day pandemic times.

With contributions from clinically extremely vulnerable people who’ve shielded during the pandemic, The Quips allows space to share experiences, thoughts and feelings on the past 2 years and the present moment.

The Quips will culminate in a live radio broadcast on 23/5/22. More details to come soon.

Heart of Glass

A research residency with Heart of Glass, Emily Gee (Producer) and local disabled people.

The research focused on intersectionality and new articulations beyond traditional art world paradigms. It will also incorporate collaborative workshops, studio time and research visits.


A facilitated work space for artistic enquiry, offering opportunities for exploration, reflection, conversation and risk taking. Led by disabled dance artist and Associate Producer at Metal Kate Marsh, the development LAB was about exploring ‘the in-between’ – the space that sits beyond the binary of the ’normative’ and ‘othered’ body. 

The sessions acted as stimulus and springboard proposing new ways of seeing, new ways of moving and new ways of being together.

The LAB was supported by mentors Luke Pell, Scottee and Noemi Lakmaier.

Cassa Della Musica, Genoa, Italy

 This international four day programme brought together disabled and non-disabled musicians from the UK and Italy. The focus was around disability and music, and included a practical session led by Phil Hill (Drake Music UK) as well as a Symposium for Music Leaders.
