Rachel is one of the WIN Project Officers, (working alongside Suzanna and Rosie).
The WIN Project Officer outreach team designs workshops and activities and delivers these to all of the schools and FE colleges across the WIN region, including the WIN Together partnerships. These sessions are run in variety of ways, ranging from whole-year group events to smaller, targeted groups.
After following her heart to art college, she worked for over a decade in design and advertising in London. She then transitioned to working with young people, as an artist educator in schools and colleges throughout the UK. Alongside this she worked on creative curriculum development and as a tutor with Ideas Foundation, encouraging young people into the creative industries.
"Throughout my work in education I have witnessed the power of creativity to reveal hidden talents and inspire confidence and self belief. As well as my role within the WIN, I also work in a busy secondary school in Bradford on Avon and, as often as I can, escape to my own studio to paint".
