Clara obtained a BA in Arts & Design (Drama & Photography) and completed a Master of Arts in Curating at Sunderland University.
She worked as an artist in a variety of contexts Throughout my career history. Clara delivered, coordinated and hosted heritage, arts and digital media participatory projects and workshops with a wide range of community groups, ages and learning abilities in the North East of England and Continental Europe. She has also assisted in the design, curation and production of arts exhibitions and installations alongside other artists and curators.
Clara is interested in heritage and the mechanisms at play in the production of culture and the relationship between culture and community. For Creative Exchange, she is interested in exploring participatory curatorial practices of community archives through the use of digital technology, and how these processes can assist communities in the representation of local histories and offer possibilities for new understanding and perceptions of the socio-architectural fabric of the city.
