Art forms:Contemporary and Creative Dance. Improvisation and Choreography with cross arts, media and literacy.
Summary: My arts practice celebrates individuality, expressivity and being in the moment. I ensure that all projects support artistic, social, health and well being needs of the people with whom I work. Therefore, I work collaboratively, reflecting and evaluating practice and engagement. Individual progression and learning are at the fore of my practice, with artistic process and aesthetic outcomes nurtured, sustaining high quality community arts engagement.
I can deliver one off workshops in schools, supporting cross arts and cross-curricular learning. Engage youths who are unsure of their placement in their immediate community and wider society. Nurture and inspire youth dance and performance company groups. Tailor projects for people with mental health illness. Along with a vast dedication to the relevance and quality of the arts in the health and well being sector. Particularly for children with life limiting illness, adults with dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
For me, dance is a form of expression and communication. It is a powerful and liberating tool, which can bring people and communities together. With this belief, dance is used to enrich artistic engagement with all people, from all community groups, abilities and health care needs. Everybody is able to express and feel, and my enjoyment is to facilitate this movement journey. Be it as choreographer, director, mentor, tutor and dancer.

Summary: About Emily Campbell’s practice:
Through the use of photography my practice seeks to create a world that on the one hand is real and on the other – imaginary. Using digital imaging, I effectively ‘paint with photographs’. Each image is made up of many smaller photographs enabling me to create surreal and magical scenarios.
The work I create for Public Commissions seeks to create an uplifting yet calming environment. Often working with a creative writer in the community, I visualise the poetic texts created about the local area. Large surreal vistas are installed as light boxes or printed onto Perspex, allowing the visitor views of their locality possibly only before seen in their dreams.
Experience: I have many years experience working in the Public Realm. All my work starts with workshops in the community, which inspire the final artworks. Recent projects include, a series of light boxes for Fulbourn Hospital, Wolverhampton Kings High School and Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital. Please email me for a full CV.

Summary:My work is a balancing act between art and industry. It’s part solitary but mostly collaborative, binding together and presenting other disciplines in performance. It’s about capturing and creating atmosphere for a production, creating an environment, addressing all the senses but predominately visual. Sometimes using traditional stage design materials and on other occasions new more innovative technology. The work is usually part of a live performance. It’s ephemeral nature adding to its many special qualities. Each performance is unique.
Experience:After graduating I joined the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester as a scenic artist, props maker and designer. Since then I have worked as a designer in numerous theatres all over the country and as Head of Design at the Redgrave Theatre Farnham and the Mercury Theatre Colchester. In 1999, spurred on by my increasing personal and professional interest in education I won a place on an “Artist in Education” course run by Essex County Council. Since then as part of my design practice I have devised and run projects in Theatres, Schools, Colleges, Essex University and latterly for Creative Partnerships.
