What we learn, and how we learn it, impacts on our perception and treatment of ourselves and our environment. James believes that artful ways of exploring our environment, reaching out to touch, feel and notice, and receiving sensory information in return, can enable new ways of seeing and being with the world.
Artful, participant-centred ways of working, that support individuals to explore and learn from their relationship with their cultural and natural heritage, are inclusive and powerful.
Through Creative Ecology, James works people of all ages, from pre-school to doctoral students, and with heritage, environmental and arts organisations. James devises and delivers participatory arts projects, and professional development for educators and artists, and acts as a consultant in the development of interpretation and learning materials, and project evaluation.
James works throughout Wiltshire and the surrounding counties (Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bath, Bristol, Poole and Bournemouth), across the UK, including London, and overseas.
