Mental Health First Aider


Mark is The Arts Coordinator at CYZ, he’s been working at CYZ since 2017. He is a fantastic artist, he’s a polite and cheerful person and ready to take on any Arts activity at CYZ .

We asked Mark about his job at CYZ and hobbies and why Mark is working at CYZ:

My job is to organise lots of fun and interesting arts and craft activities. Sometimes I will lead them myself, sometimes I’ll invite interesting people to do stuff with us. I’ve been working here for 18 months, and I really enjoy it. When I’m not working at CYZ, I’m working as a professional artist; I’ve had exhibitions locally, in London and Holland. I make sculptures about animals and about history; you can see what I do at

Do come along to the arts area and get involved, and if we aren’t doing something that you would like to do, tell me and I’ll try to make it happen.

Mark you’re amazing #unusual artist & we’re so lucky to have you as an awesome team member! You offer our members such fantastic Arts Provision – CYZ wouldn’t be the same without you!
