Arts can help bring about change for a resilient and sustainable present and future, reducing feelings of isolation and helping to heal our culture.

Let's inspire pro-social behaviour and redefine what success means, moving the focus from acquisition to shared experiences, relationships and community solidarity, working together with nature, giving, healing, creating, growing....where reward comes from reciprocity not ownership.


Join me on a workshop - you can choose from 3 workshops using art to create work around the planetary and earth system boundaries, resilience and sustainability, and celebrating and exploring nature.


Please email SYSTA to find out more. 


Workshops can take place at your workplace for sustainability & wellbeing days, community groups, home-educated groups, birthday parties, schools or family gatherings. I will come to you.

Workshops and party package £10 per person includes all materials. Additional cost for travel if outside Norwich, UK.

* This concept presents a set of planetary boundaries within which humanity can help maintain healthy, safe and just earth systems. In September 2023, a team of scientists at the Stockholm Resilience Centre quantified, for the first time, all the processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth system. These were first proposed by former centre director Johan Rockström and a group of 28 internationally renowned scientists in 2009.

Join the SYSTA PAC and become a Positive Agent of Change, where collaboration makes us, and our messages, stronger. 


I love collaborating with others to make exciting things happen, bringing people together and building their creative confidence to use the arts for social change. I have over 35 years experience in the arts, health, charity and educational settings.

I have a full DBS certificate and public liability insurance.


I believe the arts have a vital role to play in empowering people of all ages to use creativity for their own well-being and raise awareness of issues important to them.

  • Mental Health First Aid Kit with students at Framingham Earl School working as a design team making art and content to reduce stigma around mental health. Outcomes include an online resource for students on the school website, a giant flag for school, posters and book.

Too often people believe they are not creative, so can't take part in projects like this.


But I believe creativity is an approach to how you live your life, an open mindset with positivity and willingness to try something new.


All projects result in original art work for participants to keep, to share with others on social media, for exhibition or permanent display in a group space, or to sell and raise funds for your chosen cause.

Please contact me to hatch exciting plans on how to collaborate with you individually, or with a group you work with.
