Please note that sadly this project is on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak. I am currently working on learning resources that can be used during this period - in future, the project will be working with The Kite Trust bringing its contents to Cambridge, Ely and March.  

In the Summer of 2019 I was awarded a small grant for young entrepreneurs by the Guildhall School for Music and Drama in collaboration with the Barbican. This allowed me to embark on a solo art project, Pride in Progress, a series of art workshops specifically designed for LGBT+ youth groups in the UK. 

Pride in Progress consists of four workshops: 

Art as Activism
LGBT+ History Zine Project
Right this Down
Gender Dysphoria (and what to do about it) 


The workshops are 60-90 minutes long, designed for groups of 10-15 individuals and allow space for free creative expression combined with a couple of more structured educational learning tools. These workshops are up and running from late 2019- early 2020.

"Joe was excellent at keeping the young people engaged and it was extremely informative!" 

"A positive engagement of young people in a creative process that relates directly to them....well organised and well pitched."
