Who is Ken Sprague?

I am a pensioner who has been there, done that, couldn't afford the T-shirt, but knows that creative change is possible and never more needed.

A founder member of the British Psychodrama Association, I studied with Marcia Karp, Zerka Moreno, Merlyn Pitzeli, and many others of Dr Moreno's original band of students. I gained the Holwell diploma, was the designer, builder and later co-director of the Holwell International Psychodrama Centre. Ken studied sociodrama with Warren Parry in Australia. I was Europe's first qualified sociodramatist and is an assessor for psychodrama and sociodrama students. I am also an external trainer.

I have drawn since I was four, and had my first engraving published when I was eleven. I studied for the National Diploma of design on an ex-service grant, and later won many awards, including the British Council of Industrial Design Prize for his Martin Luther King work. I was designer of Britain's first Trade Union tabloid newspaper and its first editor, doing much to modernise labour movement journalism. I have been cartooning for progressive journals for 64 years. I travel the world, and find that people are more alike than different. I think of myself as an Internationalist, proud of my English heritage. I want to see Britain's subservience to the United States government replaced by true friendship with the American people.

I am available for talks and workshops for your own organisations and community projects.


Political cartoons

I draw cartoons, mostly of a political/satirical nature, many of which have been published in UK national newspapers. Click here to see some of them.


Courses and workshops

I run a number of courses and workshops on psychodrama and sociodrama, as well as art classes. This page gives details.

Contact me

You can contact me by email at: ken@creativeaction.fsnet.co.uk. Please be patient if I am a little slow to reply - I am still learning how to use computers and on-line facilities.


Browser compatibility statement

I believe web pages should be accessible to all browsers, rather than surfers being browbeaten into switching to some particular browser to see a page. (How many people would be happy if popular TV programmes could only be watched with the latest model of one particular make of TV set?). I hope this page achieves it, but I do not have any means of testing it with all the dozens of browsers out there. If you have trouble viewing this page, please let the webmaster know, and say what browser (name and version) and what operating system you are using, so we can try to do something about it. Thanks.
