– A History of Place: 8 places, 800 years in the lives of deaf and disabled people
I am currently curating an exhibition with the charity Accentuate and three national museums: MSHED in Bristol, Museum of Liverpool and the V&A in partnership with RIBA. It will focus on the stories around buildings that have been designed for, and used by, deaf and disabled people from the Middle Ages to the present day. To find out more, please visit the History of Place website.

– Twilight People Exhibition
Twilight People was an oral history project and exhibition that launched at Islington Museum in February 2016 and toured to various locations in the UK. It told the story of people at the intersection of faith and transgender identities in their own words, and celebrated their practices of worship and their identity through beautiful photography by queer photographer Christa Holka.

– Rainbow Jews Exhibition
Rainbow Jews was an oral history project founded in October 2012 and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project has collected stories and recollections from those at the intersection of Jewish and LGBT identities, exploring how these two different worlds can bring both joy and frustration. I am advising a team of volunteers and Jewish/LGBT specialists on the design, production and delivery of this temporary exhibition t the LSE, due to open in February, the month of LGBT awareness.

– Impact Advisor for Revisioning Cambridge Platonism project, with Cambridge University
I sat on the advisory board for this AHRC-funded academic project to bring the work of the Cambridge Platonists, a group of 17th-century English philosophers, to a wider audience.
