I work for the Wellcome Trust in promoting public engagement with scientific reserach. This spans everything from direct communications (one way stuff) to community led processes around health research. I am particularly interested (personally) in participatory communications processes for empowerment and how these could be translated into public engagement with scientific research. On the weekend I work on my own art work in my studio in Brighton UK.
A world where everyone is respected by themselves and others and where arrogance is challenged and power is distributed more equally.
