Culture & Enterprise Programme; Associate Lecturer, MA Innovation Management and BA Culture, Criticism and Curation
I am an Associate Lecturer on MA Innovation Management and BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at CSM. I also teaches at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at London College of Fashion. Furthermore, I give guest lectures on design strategy, innovation and resilience at Berlin University of the Arts, Estonian Academy of the Arts, Munich Technical University, Aalto University in Helsinki and Politecnico di Milano. My work centres around creativity and resilience, particularly how creativity can be abstracted from its tangible expression to create resilient systems, processes and most of all, resilience of mind. My professional practise gravitates toward conscious entrepreneurship. Under the umbrella House of Holmberg, I run a cultural capital consultancy. Partners, clients and collaborators include EU Creative Europe programme Human Cities, the City of Munich, European Capital of Culture Aarhus2017, North Hertfordshire Homes, Vitsœ and British Council Sustainable Fashion. Before that, I co-established an entirely new academic institute, Haptic Interface Design at the University of the Arts Berlin; played a key part in building up a London-based charity that involves residents in the decisions on public space and urban planning; and started a business, Pride & Produce, which connects rural craftsmen in to the digital economy.
