Beyond creative practice
Edi is an experienced campaigner, programme leader, trainer and project manager. They develop the people and projects that work to build a better world. This has included producing creative campaigns, designing and leading training programmes, facilitating workshops and holding community spaces, and developing resources.
They are particularly invested in creating accessible and inclusive projects that ensure that we effect change that can include everybody, building sustainable cultures for learning and development, and ensuring that we centre care and justice in all our movements and efforts.
Some highlights have included:
leading the community education programme at Act Build Change
the pilot youth skills development programme for Creative Basildon
delivering creative campaigns for the Stop School Cuts campaign during the 2019 election
supporting young people to register to vote during the 2015 and 2016 elections
and a collective international exploration of time with Huddlecraft.
Edi’s work in these fields and their creative practice are inextricably linked. The projects they are involved in are best imagined sitting somewhere on a venn diagram of the two intersecting, sometimes a complete blurring of the boundaries, and sometimes distinctly one or the other - but always connected and informed by the bigger picture.
