Internationally recognised artist and educator, who helps people to develop leadership fluency
Rachel is an interdisciplinary artist, theatre maker, cultural producer, educator and community organiser working across the USA and the UK.
She is the founder and Artistic Director at Firehouse Creative Productions. Before that, she was Artistic Director at both Little Five Arts Alive Festival in Atlanta and All Change Festival in London. She’s also been a visiting artist at several universities in the USA and the UK.
Her current work uses ceramics, weaving, painting and plants to create spaces for live and imagined exchange. Drawing from conceptual and social practice, she brings together complex and often divided communities – and guides them through collaborative co-creative processes.
Rachel has shown her work internationally, at venues including Tate Britain, de Young Museum, Lyric Hammersmith, Battersea Arts Centre, Woodruff Art Centre and Standpoint Gallery, as well as public spaces.
As an Artist in Residence at Vlerick, Rachel works with the PhD and faculty communities, helping them develop leadership fluency based on multi-sensory listening practices.
