VISUAL ARTS - Pauline Bailey

Pauline has over 30 years experience in participatory arts project/curriculum management, training and education within the arts, media, and learning and skills sector, having delivered accredited programs of creative learning within the community, universities, colleges and alternative educational facilities. She has a great deal of experience of working with youth, adults who are defined as ‘vulnerable’ or ‘hard to reach’ and delivered many outreach activities through creative projects as part of her individual arts practice and within the organisations she’s worked with over the years.

As a Visual Artist, Pauline’s practice has in the past broadly centered on themes as diverse as cultural Identity and heritage to dereliction. She is currently focusing on her international arts and curatorial practice and exploring ideas around ‘resistance and rebellion, liminal spaces and transformations’

Pauline has spent a great deal of her professional visual arts practice using the creative arts to re-engage people into education and supporting others to professionalise their practice. She has been using the arts as social engagement for over 30 years and has a particular interest in working with creativity as a therapeutic experience to explore diverse themes through a range of mixed medium including large scale installations.  She has exhibited her work in both gallery and none gallery spaces locally, regionally, and internationally.
