Jayne Seddon is an artist, educator and creative producer. Her socially engaged practice explores ways to connect people with places. This usually begins with a walk, making art and enhancing the biodiversity on site. Jayne has been commissioned for over eighteen years by public health, conservation, cultural and educational organisations both internationally and across the UK.

Currently, she is Lead Artist on a creative engagement project for  Lancashire Wildlife Trust and The Turnpike Gallery. The Wanderland program engages children and families with The Carbon Landscape Partnership. This project celebrates the transformation of post-industrial landscape into vast areas of wilderness, supporting abundant and well-connected habitats for wildlife and community use.

Jayne is Artist in Residence at LIPA – The Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts, Primary School. She has worked collaboratively with the children and a range of cultural partners to develop an innovative program of art for the last five years. Early years children are  working on a major public art project: Revolutionary Nature. A partnership between ART Labs Research Centre at LJMU, National Museums Liverpool, and The Eden Project. The children are creating a wildflower garden in The Liverpool Oratory grounds. The project references Guy Debord’s ‘Society of The Spectacle and is inspired by the 1968 Situations slogan ‘Under the Cobblestones the Beach.’ Methods are focused upon learning through drawing and doing within the context of Conservation Action.

Jayne is proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience and participate in great arts and culture.

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England, recognising their commitment to high quality arts and cultural education.
