Political and Social Engagement

I have worked for a range of political and community organisations and events raising awareness about and engagement with political activism (e.g. the UEA Film Screenings of ‘The Real Social Network’ and ‘Just Do It: A Tale of Modern Day Outlaws’ which was the award-winner for the largest UK campus screening audience with realtime tweets and Q&A panels). These are some examples of the groups I have been involved with.

Occupy Norwich: Convenor of the social media and communication working group, including timely information and updates via internal and external communication, public outreach, drafting press releases, facilitating consensus meetings, interest and conflict mediation between stakeholders (Occupy network, public, press, local government).
