I am Sarah, an artist-educator, lecturer & creative producer based in South East London. I’m also a mum of a busy toddler!
Since 2006, I have worked with organisations including the Albany Theatre & Arts Centre, Entelechy Arts, Situations, Camden Arts Centre, Artsadmin & The Albany, Deptford to deliver innovative projects in unusual spaces, as well as lecturing at UWE, Bristol and delivering creative courses and workshops across London.
For the last 4 years I’ve taken my vintage 1969 Ace Globetrotter caravan, Esmerelda, on the road to connect with artists & communities at festivals across South East London (with plans to travel further afield in the future). All projects take ideas of home, belonging, migration and displacement as a point of departure. The caravan is a calm and welcoming space, and provides a unique environment to experiment with new creative ideas & techniques, all with participation at the core. In each site an eclectic programme of events takes place in & around the van, each providing a unique, site specific response to the locality for the duration of the stay.
So far I have been priveleged to collaborate with the following artists and organisations who are doing brilliant creative work within their communities – Merlin Hayward, Lakeisha Lynch Stevens, Bity Booker, Rugile Girdzijauskaite, Alex Hough, Alan Jenkins, Kaori Homma, Cafe Art, Art Refuge UK, Telegraph Hill Festival, Action for Refugees in Lewisham and Brockley Open Studios.
CARAVAN ARTS is a small space with limitless scope. Artists & performers are invited on board to explore their practice, collaborate in new ways, experiment and reflect – imagining & creating new visions for the caravan & for the diverse publics encountered. Please get in touch if you’d got an idea for a project, I’m always interested in new collaborations.
