Bus and Bird Arts

Bus in square format

Hello, my name is Clare Taylor, otherwise known as Curious Clare. I am an Artist Educator based in the East Midlands. In 2016, I set up Bus and Bird Arts as a vehicle to work creatively with people of all ages.

Bus and Bird Arts is passionate about creatively connecting communities. We engage & inspire learners through the provision of tailor made creative experiences. Our three core areas are – Community, Education & Training and Health & Wellbeing.

What do we do?

Participatory Art Projects, Project Management, Workshops & Community Art Initiatives are run by Clare Taylor. She is an experienced Community Arts Co-ordinator, who has designed & delivered bespoke creative learning sessions for a broad spectrum of learners from pre-school & school age children through to PGCE students & professional adults.

Founder, Clare Taylor, has worked on public art projects with museums, libraries and hospitals for the past fifteen years. Recent work has ranged from a permanent hosiery installation for Mansfield Museum’s ‘Made in Mansfield’ gallery, bespoke shadow puppets commissioned for Nottingham Mela by Real Creative Futures through to being appointed Inspire’s Visual Artist on their ‘Home Cooked Heritage’ Heritage Fund project.
