Description

Since 2003 I have been Chairperson of Panarts, a Charity based in Belfast, Northern Ireland which promotes understanding of cultural diversity through the arts. Working alongside Panarts, I have introduced fresh and innovative methods of teaching difficult subjects such as the 'Troubles' where contested aspects of history and ongoing narratives can also be addressed through poetry, music, performance and songwriting. This method has been delivered in Social Work teaching at Queen's and also at Belmont University, Nashville Tennessee and in Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida.
