I run the group Edinburgh Artists with Kids, a forum for peer-support, networking and professional development for artists. We also host free events for artists and non-artists alike, with child-focused creative workshops and classes, giving children a chance to get creative and parents a break and chance to socialise with other parents.

Our latest event Child's Play was held at Basic Mountain, Edinburgh in June 2015. The event featured an exhibition by Edinburgh based artists, exploring how parenthood had affected their artistic practice and a mini Biennale. Artists Steve Dale was the drive behind several workshops in which children constructed a pavilion and a bridge to cross a 'river' to reach the pavilion, created artworks to be shown at the biennale and designed tree-houses.
