Sarah Evelyn Marsh

Sarah’s practice as an artist and educator is incredibly sensitive and inclusive. Sarah has delivered several projects at Tate Liverpool with different audience groups and all have been peer led, driven by the participants’ own ideas. She has a confident and rigorous practice but combines this with warmth and generosity that inspires those she works with and nurtures their own creativity. Sarah has established herself as a leading practitioner in the region for interactive gallery spaces for children and young people. She has developed contexts for play and learning that support whole family engagement with, what can often be, baffling and intimidating environments. This strand of her practice has expanded in recent years to encompass a specialism in working with children and young people with Autism. Sarah has helped the Learning team at Tate Liverpool to introduce relaxed session to our family offer and has been key in developing our programmes and welcome for this group of visitors. She is presenting on this at a forthcoming conference at the Royal Academy in London with Tate Liverpool’s curator for family programmes.

I highly recommend that a travel bursary at this time in Sarah’s career, will support the development of her work and provide a new dimension to her practice as an artist and educator.
