I was excited the other day to learn the Arts Council has agreed to support the continuation/expansion of my Roma photo project, which began with my MA major project, Elvira and Me. So now I’m going to be able to do another chapter of this work in the Newcastle area thanks to my Homelands commission and a separate body (or bodies) of work elsewhere using the ACE funding. This is freedom indeed, and I am super excited about it all, but since I’m also a born worrier it is all fairly overwhelming at this point. In time there will be other blogposts and hopefully a website. For now though it’s going to be mainly research and trying to make new connections with these communities.
