Kev Ryan - Charnwood Arts


I am the Director of Charnwood Arts, a community arts, education and media charity based in Leicestershire in the East Midlands.

My background is in photography, literature, media, community dance and visual arts and I first became involved in community arts in the mid-late 1970's through arts led community development work in Portsmouth. After contributing to the development of projects or organisations in Brighton, Oxford, Loughborough and Leicester and freelance work around the East Midlands I joined Charnwood Arts as an arts development worker in 1991 after many years as a volunteer.

I am also one of the founder members and current directors of Mailout, the national magazine for participatory arts in the UK and a director of the EMPAF Partnership. I have worked on or developed programmes across all art forms including project work in Europe, India and China.
