In addition to his practice, Alexander Mourant is a Visiting Lecturer and Tutor on BA (Hons) Photography at University of Westminster, he believes passionately in the power of creativity. Recently, in 2022, he designed and led A Place to Call Home, a landmark schools collaboration project with Wandsworth Council’s Children’s and Arts Service. The project saw 2,216 pupils, 123 teachers and 51 schools in the borough of Wandsworth, participate in a series of expanded art sessions, exploring the subject of community. The focal point of A Place to Call Home took the form of a large architectural installation, built collaboratively with contributions from each class, in the form of a panel artwork. The outcome was a vibrant tapestry, representing the imagination, diversity and social fabric of the community.
