melanie thompson collaborator/performer/public and sitespecific artist

I am a hybrid artist, this means I have trained as a performer,dancer,visual artist and collaborated with writers and composers (among others ) over the last 30 years, therefore my practice is informed by all those experiences. Recently I have run a dance festival and worked as a art consultant and a lead artist for three large public art projects in the South West. I have just finished a years public site project based in Wells, Somerset entitled 'Palace Intrusions' see for archive documentation and great photographs. I have just set up a collaboration with the artist Bob Budd 'Shared Spaces' to allow us to work together as a team on site specific or site sensitive public art projects. I have been lecturing all my working life, often at Dartington College of Arts where I teach interdisciplinary practice in all departments. In 2002 I recieved an M.A in 'Art in Context' from U.W.E Bristol.
