Jake Stewart helps artists and individuals tell stories through exhibition and oral/video archive. A specialist in museum object curation, stories & exhibitions he works extensively with objects, their owners and fine & contemporary art. He can often be found transforming spaces, places and people with @Poorboy_stories
He is a Specialist Advisor for @CEOScotland - helping curators, artists, collectors, board members and community organisations on all aspects of creating exhibitions and capturing archival or oral history stories and the realities of working with galleries, museums and exhibitions.
Jake has been creating and delivering arts projects with professionals and communities in partnership with his wife, Poorboy Artistic Director Sandy Thomson, since they met in 1996 and decided it would be fun to create a performance and exhibition showcase with eight to 15 year olds - in less than three days. Since then they've worked together on projects in UK, America and Brazil with everyone from railway enthusiasts to local historians, film makers, musicians and the occasional juggler.
