Rayvenn Shaleigha D'Clark - Big Landscape Project Manager

Rayvenn Shaleigha D'Clark is currently contributing to the development of The Big Landscape toolkit and guidance materials.

Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark is a digital sculptor, curator and lecturer who freelances across a number of creative institutions including the London College of Fashion (UAL), Shape Arts and Runnymede Trust. Her most recent artwork includes Black Renaissance which was commissioned for permanent display at the Freedom Monument Sculpture Park in Montgomery, Alabama, 2023. 

Describing Black Renaissance, Rayvenn says: 'I aim to honour the multiplicity of the black experience, a symbolic reminder of our ongoing struggle against racial injustice in many countries across the world.

'This commission measuring 3m (9ft) is a milestone not just for its scale but for being entrusted to a young early-career black female artist such as myself under the age of 30. It holds the power to reshape narratives around slavery. Our collective goal is not just to commemorate, but to educate and inspire action towards a more equitable future.'

Rayvenn is represented by mtartagency.  In April 2023, Rayvenn was recognised as one of Forbes Thirty under 30.

Rayvenn has also co-led the redesign and development of NSEAD's ARAEA resources, and managed phase two of The Big Landscape's online portal. As a project researcher has delivered across all elements of the Runnymede Trust and Freelands Foundation's co-commission Visualising Inclusive Practice project. She contributed to the research, creative impact and wider stakeholder engagement.
