Fourth World Congress of Psychogeography
I will be taking part in this year’s 4WCOP by running an event “Acts of Resistance” from Empire House in Dewsbury at 2.30pm Saturday 7th September 2019. Full details of all the events taking place in Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Marsden (7th -9th Sept) will be available on the website soon. Saturday’s events will be staged in association with Creative Scene, so my event fits in with their Paper Peace project.
Arts Territory Exchange
In 2019, I commenced two remote collaborations with artists via the Arts Territory Exchange Programme (aTE), which comprises a global network of artists and art practices which respond to the geography of their territory of production.
The first of these is a project which extends an ongoing collaboration with Gareth Jones, artist/academic who is based in Osaka, Japan.
In the second project, I am working with Kim Goldsmith, artist and media and marketing communications consultant, based in New South Wales, Australia.
Both projects are yielding some exciting possibilities for art works over the coming months. Follow progress on my blog.

Three of my Traces laser cut relief paintings from my In Parallel series are on show over the Summer at University Centre Shrewsbury, Frankwell.
