Working as a Digital Campaigner with Uplift has provided them with valuable insights into the process of changing viewpoints, and the effectiveness of media when used correctly to facilitate such change.
In this role, they gained an understanding of how policies are created, and more importantly, how they can break down in the real world.
Working with groups across Ireland and Europe has allowed them to appreciate the nuances and complexities of raising issues and creating dynamic solutions that enable change to happen. It was through this work with grassroots groups that their professional practice began to intertwine with their art.
