Lawrence Bradby

Between 2003 and 2019 Lawrence Bradby was part of Townley and Bradby, a collaborative family practice with artist Anna Townley and their three children. The publication How To Play With MK (2020), jointly written by the whole family, presents their two-year residency with MK Gallery as a series of fictional encounters with a city which is by turns magical, mundane and threatening.

Lawrence Bradby also works as Learning Programme Manager at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, University of East Anglia, Norwich. He has built links with local nurseries and children’s centres at a time when politically-motivated austerity has produced year-on-year cuts to public services.
