Artist & ESERO-UK Space Ambassador
Sunderland
‘The Human Spaceship – I believe art and science must collaborate for humanity to fully understand that we live in a space-faring society and will witness the most astounding change in ‘being-human’ through astronomy and space exploration in the 21st century.’ Children of all ages and abilities can understand their futures within this society through using STEAM education methods, and by experiencing and creating art within the terms of space science.
Biography - Helen Schell is a visual artist and ESERO-UK Space Ambassador (ESA education) based in north east England. For 10 years she has specialised in art and STEAM education projects about space exploration and science of the cosmos, collaborating with Durham, Royal Holloway, Kent and, currently Cambridge (Dr Helen Mason, SunSpaceArt) and Northumbria Universities (Solar Group & NUSTEM), both being STFC funded projects. She has created specialist Moon themed projects under the auspices of, Moon-shot: Woman on the Moon and will be presenting a series of Moon inspired events during 2019 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon landings. She has twice received an award from the prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation enabling specific research and to expand networks with space organisations for art projects. The space themed artworks were first developed during an MA in Glass at the University of Sunderland, UK and take the form of large mixed media installations, glasswork and paintings using optical illusions. Her specialist STEAM education techniques have led to her presenting workshops and talks at Science Museum, Newcastle Centre for Life, World Monument Fund, British Science Festival and many schools nationwide.
