Ros is committed to the concepts of collaboration as vital to building arts and creative industries and believes in the need to be innovative, accessible and founded in a practice that is multidisciplinary and participatory.

A signature of her approach is to bring together emerging, established and community artists. Her cross-disciplinary approach blends practical and academic experience.
