Rick Walker


Director of Cartwheel since the summer of 2004, prior to which he was one of the Projects Co-ordinators, Rick still gets involved in projects as much as he can. He says  the variety of work Cartwheel is doing now is brilliant. Rick has worked in the participatory arts for, well, quite a long time now. His background originally was in community print and design as well as commercial printing for the music business, the labour movement and theatres. He spent 10 years with Greenwich Mural Workshop in Woolwich running the screenprinting and repro department. He worked as a freelance artist for some years before joining Cartwheel, so he appreciates the pressures on freelancers and some of the issues that arise.

He is always happy to talk about what we do, how we do it and why.






Cartwheel Arts promotes social inclusion, cohesion, diversity and regeneration through community participation in vibrant, innovative, high-quality arts projects. We use a wide range of media to respond to project opportunities and promote the development of the arts and examples of good practice across the North West.
