Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

I am a socially-engaged artist, writer and researcher living and working in London. I studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art.

Debate around regeneration, temporary public art and notions of community underpin my practice. Supported with a substantial body of ongoing research my work responds to and challenges public, urban and socio-political tensions through encouraging and engaging real people. This often results in public workshops, walks, discussions and events as artistic outcomes.

For me, art is a social medium. As I continue to pursue socially engaged art I am looking forward to more in-depth communication and research with different groups of people. I will embrace future challenges faced by socially engaged art and believe that this is an exciting beginning: its potential is yet to be fulfilled.
