“I wrap myself around your shape” – link worker

My commission for Arts Derbyshire, in support of their Cultural Prescribing project with the counties Social Prescribing Link Workers, has developed into a fascinating project. Filled with wise and caring people who despite their best efforts have a pandemic, zoom and a rising work load to help them on their way. Our work together supports them like group creative supervision while also producing outcomes, such as a zine of Joyful Interruptions, for use with clients. Currently we are working on a Manifesto that gathers their wisdoms, bringing into one space the true extent of their work. Which interestingly mirrors artist approaches and processes – namely exploration, digression, emergent thinking and responsive feel.
