Outreach Education

SunSpaceArt
I'm proud to be a team member of SunSpaceArt, winners of the Sir Arthur Clarke Space Achievement award 2021 from the British Interplanetary Society.

SunSpaceArt brings together scientists and artists working in youth education. Our team were recently in 'Astronomy and Geophysics Magazine', published by the Royal Astronomical Society (January 2021).

Recent SSA Commissions:
SunSpaceArt invited me to make a video biography on the artist Vincent Van Gogh. My 22 Biographies of great artists who directly inspire and influence contemporary scientists will be published soon.

Workshops with the team include:
Space Pop-Up workshops at Bloomsbury Festival, London (2021)
Summer of Space events at Science Museum, London (2019)
'Shaping the Big Sun – Solar Features' project at Torriano Primary School, London.

The SunSpaceArt team is led by Dr Helen Mason OBE, at the University of Cambridge. It is funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

The Selfie and the Self
I created a series of lectures for the Inspiring Minds outreach program at Canterbury Christchurch University, combining art history, contemporary art theory and practical group activities in order to explore current questions about self-representation on social media.

The Inspiring Minds project aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds taking up STEM)subjects in higher education by 2020, and is funded by the Office for Students (OfS) for the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP).
