Jem has worked in community and social arts settings for thirty years, including Seed’s Art First project in 2021. As well as being a multi-disciplinary artist and performer himself, he loves to encourage people who may not think of themselves as creative to have a go, and surprise themselves with what they can create.

He has also worked with the elderly, children, and many other groups, facilitating and integrating valued artistic input from people of all abilities and all walks of life.
