Eileen was appointed as the Executive Director (aka Artist in Residence) of the Global Parliament of Mayors Project in 2014.
Founded by long time friend and colleague, Dr Benjamin Barber, the GPM is a dynamic new governance platform for mayors. Eileen worked closely with Dr Barber through the development period and the inaugaural convening of the GPM in The Hague in September 2016, and continues as a part of the international Advisory Committee. She is developing proposals for a Cultural Programme for the GPM.
The official logo of the GPM, which uses the sunflower seed pattern, celebrating order and balance is Eileen's concept.
For the event in 2016, Eileen curated and produced the Opening Ceremony, which included a video artwork supporting a live choral work produced by Dutch composer and conductor, Merlijn Twaalhofen.
