Nova Marshall


Nova is a participatory artist, having graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at UCA. She has extensive experience of working in schools and in community settings often creating large-scale collaborative installations.

Nova loves working with children and young people and she has developed a strong participatory practice that is youth-led, collaborative, adaptable and guided by those taking part. She talks about the word β€˜yes’ – yes means giving participants permission to try something new, to take risks and be ambitious. By truly listening and saying β€˜yes’ to their creative ideas over and over again, children and young people grow in confidence and self-belief. To see this in action makes her heart sing!

Nova has worked with People United as an artist on projects such as The Best of Us, our Arts & Kindness Weeks in Schools, and more recently with our Arts Award programme and at Tate Exchange.
