Job Role: Photographer
Company: Yas Crawford Photography
Art Forms: Multidisciplinary, Other, Photography
Bio:
I was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales where the arts, it\'s geological landscape and biological make-up have it seems, subliminally seeped into my being and heavily influence my work. I have worked as both a scientist and an artist and now work in the \'Grey Space\' the space in between those disciplines. This adds a cohesiveness and curiosity to my image-making. I like to use digital and analogue photography sometimes mixed with various scanning, illustration and printing techniques.Working collaboratively or simply creating my own projects often reveals layers of photographic research intertwined with the landscape.

Job Role: Socially engaged interdisciplinary theatre practitioner
Art Forms: Ceramics, Dance, Multidisciplinary, Other, Pottery, Sculpture
Bio:
My collaboration has been focused within vulnerable groups and in healthcare settings using multi-sensory based theatre and movement. Using multiple artforms to explore, would like to be connected and am open to forming partnerships to collaborate with artists/funders/producers/institutions  for participant-led  work while sharing my practise and interests. Would like to be involved with discussing challenges in discourse and pivotal points for change and transformation, whether that\'s in a healthcare setting or group dynamic and/or personal experiences. For me this is a time to seek out, experiment and take risks more than ever! Questioning how I can improve and develop practise ethically, skilfully,  am keen to be inspired to empower people I work with and myself in recovery and vision. Can be implemented in fatigued environments to support and aid care and experiment perhaps through performance art and holding creative spaces and build authentic partnerships. I feel by coming together like in and with Arts & Health Hub, we can make infrastructure in healthcare stronger.

Job Role: Artist and Consultant
Company: Yvonne J Foster
Art Forms: Multidisciplinary
Bio:
Yvonne J Foster is a Brighton based artist. She hand-makes miniature works of art, books and tiny boxes; stitches paper landscapes; and creates graphic images. Alongside this work she uses art to express the unique way her brain processes information.
\"I\'m constantly searching for different ways of explaining how I respond to the world. I play the visual storyteller; creating worlds of escapism, optimism, possibility and longing. When emotional realities are harsh I choose curiosity, creative exploration, freedom, invention, stories and treasures.\"
When not creating art, Yvonne works with local organisations delivering Arts for Health and Wellbeing programmes for under supported artists facing barriers due to disability, mental health, long term illness, and social circumstance.

​\"Being creative is essential to my wellbeing. It helps me to connects with others and enables me to share stories and start conversations.\"
