I’m Richard Povall…

…and I’m not really maintaining a website anymore. I’ve also pretty much withdrawn from all social media mostly because, despite its community-building upside, its growing toxicity is on balance making society and culture worse off. There is too much poison and too many social media companies have become the plaything of the uber-rich. But you can still find me and my work at places like academia,edu, researchgate and LinkedIn.com.

I am now the holder of art.earth Books which you can purchase here. I led art.earth from its inception in 2016 until the end of 2022. The organisation closed in January 2023. Explore the archive site.

Previous live included co-Directing roles with Aune Head Arts (UK), half/angel (UK/IRE) and teaching and research positions in the UK, US and Korea.

I am now writing independently, and trying to get as much sailing in before my body rebels.
