Geraldine's role with PUSH is to document and make creative responses to all three topics. She will do this by attending all the Labs and festival visits and by creating a series of short films that will explore the topics and introduce all to the people involved in/participating in PUSH. At the end of the project she will create a documentary of the two years.
You can watch the films created so far here.
"I create and partake in collaborative exploration with enthusiasm and hope. I think the arts offer other ways of exploring the world we live in. I believe creatively, sharing ideas and experiences is an important part of enriching my life and the lives of those I share with.
I am a film maker but also work across art forms. I works on a diverse range of projects and have previously designed and facilitated projects for Scottish companies including Firefly Arts, Platform, National Theatre of Scotland and Imaginate.
I have been commissioned to create films for Starcatchers, Platform, Sense Scotland and a range of other arts and community organisations.
Alongside this I am co-founder of Independent record label KOR! Records, who run music projects with young people with additional support needs.
I'm currently studying Level 6 BSL and am very interested in exploring the creative possibilities of access in my work."
