Marcus Keating

Marcus is an artist, educator and father of one.

He is interested in how art institutions can invite communities into their spaces through the use of education programs and environmental adaptations. He has worked in both Primary and Secondary schools in teaching and non-teaching roles, working with children with a variety of complex needs as well as developing relationships with families in areas where bonds between home and school have traditionally been difficult.

Currently, his art practice is painterly and text-based and tackles personal anecdotes relating to historic trauma. He has been involved with several Artist-Run spaces and recently set up The New Happiness at The Lombard Method here in Birmingham.
