Speaker information

Simon Read, Associate Professor in Fine Art, Middlesex University London

The contribution of art to partnership working and habitat management.

Simon Read is an artist who for a great many years he enjoyed considerable success working through a museum and gallery context, developing an expanded interpretation of photography, but has increasingly found that this does not allow the scope to interact with other disciplines and in other arenas.

This has led him to foster projects on a collaborative basis where the outcome might range from a public commission for an architectural site to consultancy. More recently he has immersed himself in the environmental debate where other kinds of collaboration on an interdisciplinary level are vital.

This is an opportune moment to review what has been achieved in salt marsh conservation through scientific research and community partnership, share lessons learned and continue to work towards understanding and realizing equilibrium in our coastal environment through well informed low-key interventions.
