Aviva Leeman

2018 Fellow

Aviva founded Everybody, a social enterprise connecting families of kids with additional needs to have everyday fun, in everyday places, alongside everybody else.

Aviva was a 2018 Fellow. For the frontline phase, she was placed with Origin Housing, and she helped deliver a consultancy project for the Makeshift Foundation.

Educated in Communication Art and Design (MA RCA / BA Camberwell College of Art), Aviva’s work sits at the intersection between public art, participatory strategies and design methodologies. Commissions include artsdepot, Hatfield House, Museum of St Albans, Battersea Pump House, County Hall, Royal Festival Hall, and Norwich Castle Museum; alongside residencies in schools and on regeneration initiatives. Her understanding of how small interventions in language and environment can significantly affect lived experience was also very much shaped by her experience as a mum to Dexter, who has Down Syndrome.
