Lauren Walker

I'm very interested in creativity, thinking outside the box to find solutions, sustainability, community and communication.

Lauren's 'getting stuff done' manifesto

  • Think
  • Design
  • Play
  • Do
  • Tunes
  • Cook
  • Make
  • Film

Audio-visual artist. Final Cut, Logic, Photoshop, Lightroom.... I like to work with projection, den making, hands on art, film making, music making - I like conceptualising, I like learning and facilitating others to be creative!

I was known as Kai Lena for many years in Chester, singing and playing my piano around the city at various venues.

I founded Yugen Creative, a small collective of freelance artists to produce art based projects for other companies, individuals or our own creative projects. Currently work at Chester Zoo as their resident Digital Learning Officer, with pyka - a creative digital learning company using iPads, music, art and coding to enhance curriculum learning and at The Sharp Project as a multimedia content developer, training facilitator and social media guru for a company who create immersive environments.

I also trained to be a vegetarian/vegan chef many moons ago - but that's another story!

Part of the movement for 6 years
