I have been working to shape, implement and develop Unit X since its inception in 2012. Unit X brings together students from different disciplines to work on live project briefs created by a wide range of partner organisations working with our academic staff. It equips students to work confidently and professionally, as they collaborate, experiment and realise creative responses to briefs. The unit culminates in the Unit X Festival, a week of pop-up events and exhibitions that transforms spaces throughout the city into urban galleries and event spaces. I work alongside colleagues, students and external partners to deliver this annual event.
