Artist biography

Living and working in Norfolk, UK
2008-2011: BA hons Photographic Arts, University of Westminster

Genevieve Rudd has led and organised engaging community arts projects since 2011. She has developed projects with people in care homes, museums, galleries, libraries, youth clubs, schools, community festivals and in public spaces. In particular, she is inspired by the positive transformational power of creativity, and believes that engaging in the arts can be a catalyst for self-development and improved quality of life, whilst being enjoyable and expansive in its own right.

Informed by her training in art photography, in Genevieve’s own arts practice, she uses multidisciplinary techniques including hand-sewing and printmaking. Her inspiration is drawn from the natural world through exploring botanical forms, working directly with plants, or utilising recycled and natural materials. Within this, she considers themes of time, place and seasonality.

She has been awarded funding from UnLtd (2015) and Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund (2017, 2018) to deliver self-initiated community arts projects. In 2017, Genevieve was awarded a place at Clore’s Emerging Leaders residential.

As part of her continuing professional development, Genevieve regularly attends conferences and training to develop her arts practice and community engagement skills. This has previously included Behaviour Management and Youth Arts (2012), Reminiscence Arts in Dementia Care (2013) and Take One CPD (adapted from National Gallery’s Take One Picture teacher training, 2018). She is also an Arts Award Advisor at Bronze & Silver levels (2017).

Genevieve is a member of Artists’ Union England, holds up-to-date Public and Products Liability Insurance and recent DBS checks. Plus, she has additional training in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.

Currently, she works as an Associate Artist at Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich delivering projects with schools and visiting groups.
