My name is Josie, I'm 25 and from Scotland. I moved to Amsterdam for my Masters in Identity and Integration at the UvA. Before living here, I studied Literature, Language and Culture in Edinburgh, Toulouse and Lisbon. Over this summer I have been doing research on community organisations (with a particular focus on arts spaces, festivals and carnivals) in the Southside of Glasgow.
The work I have been involved with so far has been mostly in grassroots organising and education. I’m really interested in community arts spaces, and how to make the creative sector more accessible, inclusive and relevant.
I am very excited to learn more about how Mediamatic intermingles science, design and art to make inter-disciplinary conversations happen between different fields and themes!
