Job Role: Community Arts Facilitator
Art Forms: Ceramics, Multidisciplinary, Other, Painting, Writing
Bio:
 

As a community arts facilitator, one of the cornerstones of my practice, is to ensure that the activities I propose are as accessible as possible. I endeavour to create frameworks that have the flexibility to be adapted to the individual needs and wishes of the people that I work with. They are “fool proof”; I like the children and young people, no matter what they have created, to have a sense of achievement at the end of the workshop or session. I also like to use sustainable materials as much as possible so families can do the activities again from their homes.

Job Role: Student
Company: N/A
Art Forms: Fabric / Textiles, Multidisciplinary, Painting, Sculpture
Bio:
For the past years I have been exploring the body-mind-emotion connection, and it has had a major influence in my art work. Inspired by my research I created an art project, Costumotions, in which I combine costumes and mental health.
In short, in my project I work with people using costume as a medium to explore our inner emotional landscapes. The project strives to display the body-emotion connection visually by locating emotional sensations in the body, creating forms for them and then turning all of the findings into a wearable costume sculpture. Through Costumotions, I am hoping to raise awareness on how important it is for us to express our emotions, to maintain healthy body and mind.
There where I care for people, I am also a sustainable artist and try to use only recycled materials in my work

My name is Montox
City: London
Job Role: Artist / mentor
Art Forms: Fabric / Textiles, Glass, Multidisciplinary, Music, Painting, Photography, Pottery, Wood, Writing
Bio:
I have a keen interest in the seen and unseen and the interconnectedness of all things. I seek to open opportunities to deepen respect for the inherent potential and dignity within all life and to foster this through a stewardship-witnessing of self and other. I weave both the human and non-human, embracing the mix of stone and air and trees that form intricate aspects of self, identity, memory, movement and place.

 

Since 208 I have been facilitating workshops in the wider community, reaching vulnerable or isolated groups/individuals. My work is strongly body/sensory oriented in approach. This connects strongly to the aims of the Hub. Most recently I was engaged in a 1:1 long term in which I developed a tailored sensory arts programme on the boundaries of health and education. This included working with a GP across boundries of Eastern/Western medicine practices amidst the daily reality of life.

I am oriented towards working to engender hope and open up space/vision therein.
