I offer 1:1 or group mentoring and workshop facilitation to support artists, researchers and anyone looking to develop their practice, share research in creative ways or who is interested in working creatively with communities or groups of interest.

'Working with Ellie is always a great experience. She is intuitive and great at making researchers feel comfortable trying new creative methods for engaging with publics about their work. Recently we matched Ellie up with a researcher to communicate their research findings to stakeholders and start to build new partnerships. Ellie worked with the researcher and came up with the suggestion of a ‘pick and mix’ game to explore the ideas from the research, and it worked brilliantly. Ellie finds the right balance of creative activities that aren’t intimidating to get started with, but that also get people thinking about things deeply from different angles. Ellie facilitates workshops with humour and care and creates a supportive environment for people to share ideas.'

'Ellie's creativity and enthusiasm transformed a discussion of our research findings into an engaging and stimulating event with local partners, out of which new and exciting research ideas have emerged.' 
Dr Ailsa Cameron, University of Bristol
