Learning

I have been lucky to work with hundreds of organisations teaching art and delivering learning programmes spanning the arts, environment, education, heritage, regeneration and health.

Aiming to be as sustainable as possible in my practice, with green recycling bags at the ready to recycle any waste incurred.

Qualified with an MA in Arts Management, BA Hons in Visual Studies and Certificate in Education. This has enabled me to write winning proposals, design art learning programmes, work to budget and provide creative solutions for a range of very diverse clients.

Some of the great organisations I have worked with include:

Entrust, Community Landfill organisation: wrote bid for London Borough of Havering to secure £42k for Eco Mural art project for a regeneration programme.  This included organising educational programmes in schools, public spaces and the library to create a better awareness of protecting our environment. 

Arts Council England: Awarded £72K to plan the first national conference on creativity and waste, design and implement a two year training programme on creativity and reuse, set up a library and artists database for an environmental recycling charity. 

Marks and Spencer Archives: delivered a sustainable arts learning programme as part of their Plan A because there is no Planet B.  I designed a series of workshops re-using their waste to inspire their audience to make fashion accessories.

Interface Carpets: one of the worlds largest sustainable carpet companies to run some eco- jewellery workshops as part of Clerkenwell Design Week.

Sure Start Children’s Centres, Worcestershire:  Designed family learning arts programmes for three years across ten children’s centres in Worcestershire incorporating literacy, storytelling, sensory, technology and science. 

Age UK and Museums Worcestershire: wrote a winning proposal to make memory books and design a learning programme for the over 50’s. Involved in marketing, evaluation and commissioned to make a regional resource on “how to make a memory book”.
