Outside In Artist Advisory Group

The Artist Advisory Group is a key advice-giving body for Outside In, playing an important role providing strategic guidance and informing the development of its programmes. 

The group will meet four times a year prior to the charity's board meetings with its recommendations being fed to the board by artist trustees.

Artist Trustee

Dannielle Hodson

‘I have always been creative, I channelled my energy into fashion design and worked in this industry for some time. It was in later life, because of a terrible incident, that I ended up serving a custodial sentence and it was not possible to do anything fashion related whilst inside so I felt terribly stressed and low.’

Winning an award with Outside In was a remarkable experience that changed my life in such a positive way. Having my first solo show in Pallant House Gallery was quite an honour. It gave me focus, strength and determination to move forwards, whilst reflecting on the past.’ Dannielle is currently studying for an MA in Fine Art at Central St. Martins.

I love to experiment with lots of different mediums, including sculpture, collage and textiles. Recently I've been making figures from broken and scrap objects. I run regular art workshops and I love working with other artists. I have taken part in Step Up at the Wellcome Collection and I had a piece in Radical Craft. Outside In means a lot to me as it has given me opportunities to develop as an artist.

Oysters by David Jones

Whilst at school I enjoyed art and managed to get an ‘O’ level grade in this subject, for the next 25 years I did not do any art at all. Due to peer pressure and lack of confidence which I confused with being bolshie and loud and being an attention seeker. I moved to London in the early 80s found employment, and started to use narcotics and other drugs. During the 23 yrs of my using I ended up on the streets begging, hospital, prison and 2 rehabs. I also managed to hold down various jobs whilst using which was extremely stressful and demeaning.

Sparkling Whale, 2017 by Sarah Watson

When I draw portraits of people I see their personality, whether I know them, if they are a stranger or through a photo. All I care is that they love and enjoy the work that’s all I care about” Multi skilled, self-taught, I think differently, they call me trouble. I am Chair of Trustees for Carousel, a member of Oska Bright film team, member of Creative Minds committee and a digital artist for Creatures of the Revolution.  I express myself through my art, experimenting with mixed media, drawing, animation and photographs. I use pens and inks and phone apps experimenting and layering colours and images. I use the camera as a tool to cope with my anxiousness and worries or sometimes to get me focused in a project at Carousel or daily life. I write reviews of exhibitions and performances and use instagram. My work is colourful bold and vibrant, influences and inspirations include magazines, films, Van Gogh, music, comics and instagram. My favourite films are Batman and Blade Runner.

Omeima's work was featured in Arabic Weekly magazine and the Al-Kharaf magazine TV programme. She was awarded Arts Council England funding for the Eye2Eye project in 2016/17, followed shortly by a commission to co-create the  Audiovisability textile-music fusion entitled The Unheard World, which was hosted at Fabrica Gallery, Brighton in 2017.
