Arts Emergency

Andy Rimmer

Community Artist, Prop and Set builder.

Hi, I’m Andy and I’ve been a youth worker for nearly 30 years, using art as a medium to build relationships with young people. I currently work as a freelance artist/ prop builder and as a housing support worker with young people who’ve been homeless. I do a lot of work on festivals, building sets, costumes and props for large scale events and could offer some really interesting experience to someone who wanted to develop skills working in the outdoors, in some interesting conditions, thinking on your feet and making the ideas of a whole bunch of amazing talented people come to life. I’m pretty easy to talk too and and after 30 years in youth work around the UK I’ve seen a lot of stuff- so I’m pretty hard to shock.
