Higher Education. Creative Industries. Thoughts. Opinions. My opinions, not my employers, obviously. You get the drift!
I am a senior lecturer with the Educational Development Unit at the University of Greenwich. Before moving to the UK, I was with TAFE NSW, a further education institute in Sydney, Australia where I ran programs in arts management, marketing and events management. I have worked as in the book trade, promoting local authors and have been program director and chair of a community radio station. I am currently working with and making independent and DIY arts. My research interests include; community and third sector governance, education and training of independent artists, applications of marketing strategy to independent artists, the uses of community and public media for the promotion of arts, strategies for the promotion of creativity and collaboration amongst artists and the development of business literacy amongst independent artists.
