An award winning blogger I have published several blogs over the years.
SHOW&TELL blog is a collection of my notes from ZeitgeistArtsProjects talks as well as other talks/conferences/debates/ exhibitions I attended.
It was a way of giving some insight to those who cannot attend these event & an archiving device for some remarkable artists, arts organisations and projects.
Becoming Part of Something Part 2
Becoming Part of Something Part 1 led to the development of a 'superb' dynamic artist led space: Core Gallery & DIY Educate. In November 2011 I left Core Gallery to set up an Independant Artist led project space ZeitgeistArtsProjects with Annabel Tilley. We shall be continuing the highly successful DIY Educate Show&Tell Programme & curate exhibitions.

Becoming Part of Something Part 1
Artist Rosalind Davis’ blog – Becoming Part of Something – is an insightful, reflective diary that deals with the personal aspects of being a working artist and running an artist-led gallery (she described the gallery as ‘like an informal MA for me’), as well as documenting exhibitions and thinking carefully about the pros and cons of the type of work she does. Rosalind seems to be unafraid of writing about contentious topics and is, equally, happy to share her knowledge and experiences with the artistic community. Brilliant.
Choice blog on a-n, Artists Talking - selected by Sian Hislop, June/July 2010
Rosalind Davis' blog 'Becoming Part of Something' is a perceptive and illuminating insight into the trials and tribulations artists face on their post-college odyssey. 'Becoming Part of Something' won the accolade of a-n's Blog of the Year 2009, and the draw I felt towards it demonstrates that she continues to set a compelling tone. Her posts have the potential to inspire other artists to use their energy and vision to help make change possible.

Blog 1:John Jones. Projection Space and the future
Info about the Projection blog: 'An honest self-critique and insight into both making work and developing a career. '
Matt Roberts chose Rosalind's Projection blog as a ' choice blog' on artists newsletter in July 2009:
'Rosalind Davis' Blog illustrates an artist tentatively using the medium as a tool for self-critique, laying out her feelings about her work as it develops. Beyond the life of this project her blog exists as a living portfolio, as we, the reader are offered a window into the ideas that lay behind each piece as she juggles the pressures of life, work, and artistic ambition...we gain an insight into how her work has been shaped by the community around her. Overall we see a picture of a talented and committed artist, making difficult practice-based and career decisions, whilst trying to remain financially stable, and a functioning person.
A narrative I'm sure we can all empathise with. '
