Read our latest blog to find out how Fitzrovia Noir CIC are engaging communities and broadening access to the arts in neglected neighbourhoods across London and North East England.
The son of a coal miner and a chemist, Garry Hunter studied engineering in his native Tyneside, before embarking on a 30 year career in photography, working on assignments worldwide, from Apple in Las Vegas to the UN in Zinder. He has lived in London, New York City and Rome, spending extended periods in Latin America, South East Asia and West Africa.
His experience in large scale production, planning and strategy has been put to great use in his community engagement practice. He has authored a number of books and works as a consultant with charitable foundations, contributing to reports that feed into government policy.
Largely self-taught and despite having no degree, he has taught and lectured at a number of UK universities and is a visiting artist at Roskilde University, Denmark. His academic writing includes papers published in peer reviewed journals.
