I have worked in community arts and video since
1968. Amongst my many initiatives, I developed the use of video for community
participation. In 1977 I created Sweet 16, reminiscences on video
filmed by sixteen-year olds in living rooms and kitchens on a Milton Keynes
Subsequently (1978-9), in collaboration with Channel 40, Milton Keynes,
I initiated Things that Mother Never Told Us/ Women Talking,
a series of television programmes made by women, which were broadcast
over a twelve-month period.
In 2004, NSPCC, Sheffield, I worked with teenagers to create a mixed media
CD, Imagine Belonging, reflecting on their experiences of adoption.
Recently, within the NHS, I innovated Seeing is Believing - an
intervention where, magic moments between parents and their babies/ young
children are captured on video.
