Sarah Grainger-Jones

Artist/ Arts Project Manager

About

Sarah Grainger-Jones works across performance, collage, drawing and installation to explore psychological and emotional states, memory and our relationship with the natural world. She is interested in psychoanalysis, ritual and mental health. She often works with objects that have a sense of history and dislocated function, such as old photographs and books – they have a past life, a sense of otherness and misplacement. She lives in London and graduated with a BA and MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art. She has shown work at Whitechapel Art Gallery, the Bluecoat, Freud Museum, De La Warr Pavilion, Studio 1.1 and Milton Keynes Gallery.

Arts Project Manager – Sarah has worked in the arts, community and wellbeing sectors for over 20 years including as Arts Project Manager for rb&hArts, the arts team at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals; Acting Director of Arts and Deputy Director of Arts for Koestler Arts, a charity working with prisons and secure psychiatric hospitals nationwide; and as a freelance community arts workshop leader. She is skilled at bringing people, communities and organisations together to develop exciting and engaging projects and is passionate about using creativity to encourage wellbeing.
