Mandy Wax

Artist

 

I am working on individual and collaborative projects and will be exhibiting work in the not too distant future.  Please take a look at my instagram feed (link in bottom right of page) as this is a constantly growing gallery of my experiments and thoughts.  I am also in the process of devising autobiographical performance pieces.

Arts Facilitation

I help people to flourish, especially if they feel blocked or lack confidence. I can support and enable them to find their voice and story in a safe space, using creativity. By accessing art to understand emotions and working with play, narratives and discussion, I facilitate curiosity and openness.  I am particularly interested in working with underrepresented groups, LGBTQI+, refugees, people with mental health difficulties and older people.
