>>Since 2015 I have worked with Hat Fair, a festival of outdoor arts in Winchester, to lead their Young Critics on a weekend of discovery, self-expression, and professional mentoring.
>>Open to anyone aged 18-25 with an interest in the arts, the Hat Fair Young Critics are encouraged to respond personally to the shows they see during the festival, whether that’s reflections on what they’ve learnt/felt/experienced, or creative dialogue with the work, such as drawing or poetry. The Young Critics’ blog is completely unbiased and uncensored.
>>The Young Critics are also included in professional development sessions run by and for students of the University of Winchester, with visits from industry leaders and career advice surgeries.
