Jason Nelson is an artist and educator. Over the past several years the term that would best describe his practice and research would be ‘participatory’.  Working directly within communities exploring notions of culture, co-production, collective ownership and stewardship.  He is interested in how activity can empower and enable expression and action.   This expression can manifest in many forms and range from engagement with local authority, permanent sculptural interventions to live events and activities.  His work is often a response to context and exists as a result of direct engagement with people, their environments and their relationship to it.  Regardless of the scale of project the underpinning concepts that drive his work are notions of learning, social structure and ideas of identity, community and ownership.
