As part of the Purbeck Art Weeks festival (PAW) Helen is working in a voluntary role as Purbeck Young Artists (PYA) coordinator. PYA is part of the annual Purbeck Art Weeks Festival and exists to promote and celebrate the arts amongst young people. There are two main strands; an exhibition of young artists’ work and a series of artist led workshops in local schools sponsored and organised by PYA. Helens role is to run and organise workshops at schools around the Purbeck area and co-ordinate the final exhibition on behalf of the young artists along with other local artists.
