Polly Brant is an artist-educator from the West Midlands. Led by curiosity and reforming, Polly uses the process of meeting people, learning, and making to build connections. She is interested in art as a common, a part of the everyday, a space for everyone. Art education is a big part of this and what it means to her forms the base of her practice. 

Polly is  interested in what art education is, where it can happen and its meaning.  A lot of the time what she makes is made from collections of thoughts, notes, and hopeful ideas informed by research, in various forms, to both champion and question what art/art education can be.
