Polymers in Action: Thesis Wind-down and Future Projects

The website for my thesis research project, Polymers in Action, is live and can be accessed here. All future posts and updates about the project will be shared on this dedicated site. Please share with anyone who might be interested in getting involved.

I’d like to thank everyone who has supported my research, the events and shown interest in seeing this turn into a real and sustainable educational program. I have been offered a free membership to Artscape Youngplace to run the workshops on an ongoing basis and keep the momentum going over the next year. I’ll be planning the first series in the coming weeks and am excited to see where this goes!

I’d also like to thank Aurora Robson, Liina Klauss and Gabriela Bustamante for their interest in my work and taking the time to answer my questions in the name of research and community building.. I hope we can work together in the future and already have some ideas brewing for an international collaboration.

Next posts won’t be about recycled materials, for a while… Take THAT Thesis Monster… Onwards and Upwards.
