“Creativity involves putting your imagination to work.
In a sense, creativity is applied imagination”
We focus on:
- Creativity and culture in communities.
- Regenerating places: cultural strengths and opportunities.
- The arts: practice, understanding and inspiration.
- Education and learning.
- Working with people of all ages, abilities and learning styles.
- Research and development: to get a better understanding of the world around us.
Wandering Arts’ vision is to utilise the power of art, imagination and creativity to empower people of all ages and backgrounds.
Jennie Robinson is researching for her PhD, specialising in regenerating seaside towns through the arts. She has worked in the Planning Department for local councils as a Strategic Planner, and also in the Heritage and Design Planning department. Jennie is an award-winning artist who has brought together her experience in Planning, teaching, community development, and the arts to establish Wandering Arts.
Jennie was inspired by the work of renowned author/educator Sir Ken Robinson’s approach to the development of creativity, innovation and human resources in education and business. Please click the link to see Sir Ken Robinson on TED Talks. (Do schools kill creativity?).
Working as a teacher, Jennie saw the potential to use her passion and talent in the arts beyond the education system. She returned to study for a post-graduate degree in History of Art at the University of East Anglia (UEA) where she focused on the artistic identity of space, and the use of place through time.
Wandering Arts has since grown to be a collective of multi-disciplined people who are specialists in their field within the creative industry, arts, and education. An individual, or bespoke teams are collated depending on the project.
