Claire Abbott has three strands to her practice – community development, creative writing and socially engaged arts practice. She graduated from Sculpture at Grays in 2008 and completed a Masters in Education (Community Learning and Development) in Aberdeen in 2017. She is a core member of CAMINA (the critical and alternative methods and ideas network for action) and is about to embark on an Masters in Literature (Creative Writing).
Her academic interests include the ways in which built environments shape lived experiences and the exploration of storied identities through narrative inquiry. She works in a diverse range of contexts including communities of interest, purpose and place and is currently supporting communities in recovery.
