During the first year of my PhD, I worked on a project called At Home in Scotland: Stories of Place, which provided storytelling training (and more!) for researchers, helping them communicate their research in an accessible manner. These skills were put into action through events with Kickstart, Contact the Elderly and Beltane Public Engagement Network. The At Home in Scotland blog, which I managed, ran from May to September 2014, with weekly posts reflecting on research, stories, and public engagement.
In the summer of 2015 I curated an exhibition, PACE: Walking by Design, at Gayfield Creative Spaces, Edinburgh. You can find out more about this work on the Exhibitions page of this site.
I currently write regular book reviews and exhibition reviews for Aesthetica. I’ve also written for the Scottish Book Trust, Fest, The Oyster’s Earrings, and The Music Factory, as well as having served as Editor-in-chief, Art editor, and Music editor of The Student, Edinburgh University’s student newspaper.
