About us

About us

Groundswell Arts is a community arts organisation based in Haringey, London. We have an interdisciplinary approach to providing participatory education projects in early years settings and schools and communities with a particular focus on music, art, movement, and film making.

Artistic Directors Gareth Howells and Angeline Conaghan lead a team of Artists in a range of cross disciplinary projects. Coming directly from the arts ourselves we support each artist practitioner in our team to uphold our values and beliefs around inclusion and valuing everyones voice. 

Working closely with educators, parents, young children and communities, we devise creative and participatory projects that support high levels of community engagement and inclusion. Our projects encourage learning and exploration, play and sharing whilst supporting children’s wellbeing, language, communication, and transitions. We also focus on parents and carers and their role as primary influencers and educators.

Groundswell Arts values the voice of every participant who works with us. 

Groundswell Arts work with a range of our partners to deliver trainings around each of our projects and programmes for early years and primary educators.
