Jean Langhorne has been involved in the Shieling Project, as a Director, since its inception in 2013. Although she is a Zoology graduate, she initially worked in the arts for about 8 years; in community dance and theatre-in-education. Eventually, she ended up in various environmental education roles, applying an interdisciplinary approach to outdoor learning experiences. She has worked with a variety of artists and educators to develop creative and collaborative projects which can bring new perspectives to the relationship we have with the natural world and which provide catalysts for change at a personal level. More recently, as part of an MLitt in Environment, Culture and Communication, she developed her own personal “placefulness” practice and an adaptable and accessible workshop to allow others to experience how walking can be used as an attentional and embodied practice of place.
