Community Art Projects
David has been heavily involved in a number of community art initiatives in south London. This included a short period as a Director and Chair of The Brixton Artists Collective (BAC) in the early 1990s. After three years involved in BAC he co-founded Artsway Ltd, a promotion company for visual and performance artists in the UK.
The company was behind several programmes combining art, poetry and music at London venues such as the Southwark Play house, The Oval Theatre and Questors Theatre Ealing.

This includes conducting workshops for The Powerhouse, a charity in east London run by and for women with learning disabilities.
