Kayte Judge is a social artist from Bedford. She’s brought Revolutionary Arts to Bedford for talks, Ted x and to help develop an empty shops strategy for the town. We asked her a few simple questions in return.
Who do you admire the most?
Women in DIY technology: Beth Koby – Technology Will Save Us; the inventor of Sugru is pretty cool too. I also have a special ‘high five’ reserved for the founder of San Francisco’s Exploratorium (whoever they may be) and I am forever indebted to whoever invented calpol.
