Virtues of Cultural Leadership (2016)
This 7-minute film is the result of collaboration between the artist/curator Dr. Dominic Smith and myself.
It was commissioned as part of the Extend Leadership Programme (2015-16) led by engage, the National Association for Gallery Education. This commission is an artistic response to their work, dialogue and research.
