Artist in Residence

Comments about Mark’s contributions:
“Mark responded with enthusiasm to my brief and his contributions proved memorable, meaningful and enjoyable. One particular aspect of Marks role during the public reference group was to write a poem based on what he’d heard through the various discussions. Mark then performed this poem at the end of the session. This was an excellent way to round up the day, bring people and their ideas together, and to document thinking”. Cultural Manager, Milton Keynes Council
“Your performances were engaging and the professionalism you showed in keeping the day running smoothly was greatly appreciated. I know that the Nuneaton poem you composed as part of the day was also highly valued, and I am sure will be used and displayed in the future to promote the Town. People are asking when the next event will be, which I think shows just how successful Saturday was! Your contribution was an invaluable part of that success. I look forward to working with you again in the future!" County Arts Service, Warwickshire County Council
