I want to get back to that.
I got in touch with the artist in residence at Rapar in Manchester, a human rights organisation working with displaced people. I went to meet with her last week with the view to volunteering. It was a very interesting meeting and I am going for a more formal interview in the new year. I'm not sure yet how volunteering like this will fit in with my work, however I am confidant that as I start to get involved the project will develop naturally.
I am nervous about making this too much 'about me'. I want to find a way to involve others in my practice without becoming selfish and simply stealing stories from these people. This is totally new to me, before this year all of my work was about me so I am feeling my way through new territory and hoping for the best.
