I have worked in the fields of community arts, consultation and outdoor learning for around 20 years. Being based in the Bradford area for the majority of this time I have had the opportunity to enable people from a wide variety of backgrounds to learn and communicate more about themselves and their opinions, through engagement in creative projects.
Some significant projects include
A commission from Creative partnerships to explore the research question. “Can a more stimulating learning environment help our children become more active learners?” This was a collaborative project between several artists and Raynville primary school in Leeds.
Nature Nurture was a commission from Artworks Bradford to engage families whose children were at risk in creative outdoor play. The project based in Holmewood, Bradford ran over 2 years and explored areas of safety, healthy eating, risk management, confidence and dignity.
