Clare Taylor is an Artist Educator based in the East Midlands. In 2016, she founded and now runs Bus and Bird Arts, a Participatory Arts organisation championing learning and creativity within communities. As an artist, her own practice is multi-disciplinary and heavily inspired by storytelling. Clare graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a First Class BA Hons degree in Crafts having specialised in Ceramics and Textiles. Her ceramic sculptures enabled her to win the Ninth INAX Design Prize for Europeans and have a residency in Tokoname, Japan.

Clare has been involved in public art projects 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. Clare worked in educational settings for two decades with a broad spectrum of learners from pre-school children through to professional adults. She has worked in diverse environments, the most unusual being at Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre’s Pearce Ward teaching ceramic sculpture and stop frame animation to cystic fibrosis patients in their bedrooms.


New Perspectives is an East Midlands' based touring theatre company, specialising in bringing new work to rural and community audiences. Through an annual programme of original adaptations, rare revivals and new writing, we aim to bring live theatre that is diverse, affordable and accessible into the heart of wide-ranging communities, as well as to regional, national and international venues.  
Our productions are testament to the fact that rural theatre is as relevant, challenging and vital as theatre made for any other environment.
