Play and Learn Team: Rachel Scanlon

Hi, I’m Rach and I’ve worked here at Nottingham Contemporary as part of the Play and Learn team for over 10 years. I really enjoy working with your families and being creative in a fun and playful way.

Outside of NC I work as a freelance artist with Early Years children in nurseries, with SEND Young People, children in care, with women and children in Domestic abuse refuges and at Nottingham’s Hospital school. My passion is helping others find their own creativity.

I live in Nottingham with my 13 year old son and my super hairy dog called Pudding. We like taking strolls around Wollaton Park and watching Marvel films together whenever possible! My favourite colour is blue, my favourite food is chocolate. I really like dogs and I think Sloths are my spirit animal - I love the peace and serenity they symbolise, and the thought of having that much sleep!
