As a practitioner, Mimi cultivates socially-engaged dialogue about identity, culture and class through performance and immersive installation; prompting questioning and reflection on the contemporary experience. Mimi is currently studying her last year of Interactive Arts at Manchester School of Art, and, following recent material experimentation’s with concrete and inflatable objects, has been working on building a 4m diameter inflatable geodesic dome space, facilitating workshops, talks, happenings and performances over the coming months. In addition to her practice, Mimi runs the artist collective and community organisation Get It Done, who’ve been bringing creative and cultural events to Manchester since 2017. As an organisation, their main concerns are widening accessibility to the arts, providing platforms for young people, encouraging creativity and working with overlooked communities.
