Simon works for UWE Bristol as Impact Research Fellow. He was previously Research Fellow for REACT, and has held research roles at the universities of Bristol and Exeter.
Simon’s work looks at how creative organisations understand and communicate the impact of their activities, how and why universities are interested in collaborating them, and what this means for both creative and academic work.
His current work includes collaborating with Watershed on Network for Creative Enterprise and Creative Producers International, thinking about creative ecosystems, and supporting academics to improve how they communicate their work beyond academia.
Simon is also an artist, drawing and writing comics and zines about everyday life, memories, landscapes and things that have happened to him.
