In 2020 and 2021 in response the enforced changes due to the Covid 19 pandemic Julieann led on creative online and blended engagement for two projects:
- the Roche Court Educational Trust's 'Multi Sensory Art Project', creating opportunities for children with profound and multiple disabilities to experience contemporary art through all their senses
- Salisbury Museum's 'Look Again' project, co-curating a new Fashion Gallery with local young people and museum and design professionals
Before joining the team at Roche Court Julieann was a lecturer and module leader for Mixed Media Textiles on the Contemporary Arts Practice and Creative Arts degree courses at Bath Spa University, where she instigated interdisciplinary collaborations such as the Lines of Desire project exploring place through Art, Geography, Creative Writing, film and digital mapping.
