Fiercest Light was co-commissioned 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions by Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Writers' Centre Norwich. I worked with BBC Voices and pupils from Wensum Junior School, using the pupils poetry to turn into a song. We then used this narrative to produce a short film with Metric
Working with Creative Arts East on their Youth Music funded Young Promoters programme.
Most recently I facilitated a group of students from Samuel Ward Academy in Haverhill, to organise and promote a music event at Haverhill Arts Centre.

Britain on Film
For the last three years I have been working with the British Film Institute and Cinema City Education on coordination and commissions for the Britain on Film project. Using local archive footage from the East Anglian Film Archive, and themes such as Urban, Rural and Coastal. These bodies of work have culminated in performances at the Octagon Chapel in Norwich and across Norfolk and Suffolk.
