Bio:
I\'m a mixed media artist based in Camberwell, South London. Having trained in 3-D design and later in printmaking, I now work mostly with found objects and images in what can be loosely described as collage. I am a believer in the healing power of art and passionate about inspiring others through sharing my skills, so I devote a portion of my time to teaching at my South London studio and elsewhere. I have been leading  weekly creative workshops at the Elephant & Castle Community Hub since June 2019 and am interested in connecting with peers who may be similarly involved in community arts, working within institutional settings and social prescribing.

Job Role: Artist Facilitator
Company: Freelance
Art Forms: Other
Bio:
Georgia Bowers is a freelance theatre maker, facilitator and producer. Her practice seeks to create theatre in non traditional spaces with individuals who perhaps have had little to no engagement with the cultural sector. Georgia’s work firmly believes that theatre is for everyone and has the intangible power to bring people together as we collectively share and explore, stories, common concerns, ideas and desires. Through a process of co-collaboration and co-creation, her practice seeks to shine a light on these stories and offer a platform for them to be heard.

Georgia’s practice currently engages with older adults (65+), older adults living with dementia, young careers and with inner city communities.

Georgia is a graduate of the University of Chichester (BA Hons, Performing Arts & Music - First Class) and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (Applied Theatre).  Her professional engagements include: Royal Opera House, Chichester Festival Theatre, Spare Tyre, London Bubble, Hampstead Theatre, Almeida Theatre, and Watford Palace Theatre.

Georgia is currently an Associate Lecturer in Applied Arts at the University of Chichester.

From October 2020, Georgia will be undertaking her PhD at the University of Portsmouth. Her research will be examining the relationship between Applied Theatre and the adult social care sector. Her research seeks to explore how Theatre and creativity can be fostered in these spaces (Care Homes) and what the impact of creative engagement can have in relationship to health and well-being outcomes.

Bio:
Classically trained pianist and composer, poet, educator, workshop leader, producer, curator, imaginateur and artistic director of the Ealing Autumn Festival (now paused). Work in mindfulness has led me towards a growing interest in craftwork and visual art (www.ealingautumnfestival.co.uk). Self-training in digital art, virtual reality at Wired Sussex.

Special interests:

Insights into reflecting on death: programmes of music and words where composers and writers confront the acceptance of life and its inevitable consequence, death. A Winter in Majorca demonstrates a reflection on life and death shared by writer George Sand and composer Chopin during a visit to Majorca, which left them in virtual isolation on the island.

The unseen parts of our body: how they are constantly at work, how we can link with them more consciously and understand how they affect us. The brain, for example, is a much more plastic organ than we usually realise.  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1RMHSzG45ye2JEdGSIdx7vjW-heMaOt8Z?usp=sharing which shares digital and non-digital art.

Mindfulness as community activities: many activities (www.ealingautumnfestival.co.uk). I have also worked with disadvantaged people at Theatro Technis, writing and directing participants in music for plays.
