Zoo Arts Extra

I proposed the project Zoo Arts Extra in response to the community I was working with on a sessional basis at North Edinburgh Arts; an enriched and responsive programme of community events and workshops. During the 32 month period I developed the Summer Animation Project (2014 & 15), Beach Days, the DrawDance workshop with dancer Skye Reynolds and much more

ZAE’s flagship events had huge uptake alongside drawing walks, exhibitions and other events; at all times creating a space for artists aged ‘9 to 90’; challenging the convention of art and play as activities for children; creating a space for adults to share and role model the lifelong, self-nurturing power of art and exploration.
