2024: Currently working on a Handbook of Drawing Research for Bloomsbury Publishing with the UWE BCU Drawing Research Group. The Global Survey of Drawing research will include drawing research projects including examples of practice, findings, presentations, abstracts and visual essays some of which were presented at the DRG ‘What is drawing Research Symposium’ and Exhibition at Birmingham City University in November 2023.
The UWE BCU Drawing Research Group organised and Chaired ‘What is Drawing Research’ Symposium and Exhibition at
Birmingham school of Art. Nov 2023
In 2024 I’ll be documenting through drawing a project with UWE Illustration and MA Architecture students the re-development of the Quaker memorial ground in Bristol as a place of memory and reflection for migrant and asylum seekers.We are working in partnership with UWE, Bristol City Council Bristol City of Sanctuary, Bristol Refugee and Asylum seeker partnership AWE Hope Service Bristol Mind, and other organisations.
I’m also be focussing on relaunching and redesigning www.reportager.org to showcase and initiate reportage and documentary drawing projects internationally.
I’ll continue to be involved in supporting the next cycle of student Artists residencies with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital amongst other Drawing and ‘Made Image’ projects.
