In 2006 I established Visible Voice, an international network of researchers and communities using participatory video and photography to share experiences and develop communities. Since then I have continued to work with people and their communities using collaborative film making to explore everyday life, creativity and culture.
As a musician and songwriter I perform regularly in and around the Manchester area. This year (2015) i started a new collaborative documentary project exploring creativity, music and performance in and around Manchester. The Shared World Visible Music Project combines live performances of original music from musicians from across a wide spectrum of musical genres. Our aim is to produce a longer format documentary through collaborative review, planning and production over the next few months.
