I am Claire Flannery. I set up Artfeelers in 2009 to sign post people to the best contemporary art in east London [since expanded to include London generally].
Bringing small groups to see the more intimate, less well known art spaces, to meet the artists and curators, to discuss the work and question preconceptions.
I lead the Whitechapel Gallery's First Thursday Bus Tours through the east end regularly from 2010 - 2013.
Projects is a catch-all term I am using for selected visual arts projects I have initiated/ organised/ produced with other people, or through my work with UAL Arts SU, see below, that are worth documenting/ recording.
Most involve an element of / focus on performance, live art and community/ social engagement and partnerships.
My current position:
I am the Partnerships Manager for Arts SU = Students' Union of University of the Arts London.
Arts SU Creative Opportunities managed by Gavin Ramsey, for students of University of the Arts London (UAL), which incorporates six major art and design colleges in London, develops Partnerships that allow UAL students do exciting projects outside of their curriculum and organises Industry Advice that builds their knowledge and confidence.
The team also runs Made in Arts London (MiAL), a platform to sell and promote UAL student and graduate art and design through exhibitions, events and online. MiAL is a not for profit organisation originally started by students and is still steered by students.
Articles and reviews have been published in MIRAJ (Moving Image Review and Art Journal), Circa (Irish contemporary art magazine) and regular contributions to Spoonfed (an online review site, now defunct).
