Caroline Foulk

Ray Foulk, now based in Oxford, has fostered many passions since his early days as a promoter. After the dizzy heights of the Isle of Wight Festivals and stadium events in London, the Foulk brothers were head-hunted by the Milton Keynes Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion to help plan the leisure content of their new city. Through this Ray brought the inventor/scientist/designer Buck­min­ster Fuller, to the project, embraced his envi­ron­men­tal­ism, and even­tu­ally trained as an architect himself at the Uni­ver­sity of Cambridge. Combining design, education and promotion he spent much of the nineties and noughties as an envi­ron­men­tal cam­paigner, and led the ambitious in-schools project, Blue Planet Day, rekin­dling the sat­is­fac­tion, and more, that the festivals had brought to his youth. Recent years have been dominated by envi­ron­men­tal archi­tec­ture and writing.
Caroline Foulk has worked with her father, Ray, for many years, research­ing, writing, and co-promoting the schools envi­ron­men­tal project, Blue Planet Day. Recently, together they have completed a screen­play for the cinema about the invention of modern art. Caroline trained and worked as a teacher and lives in Oxford with her husband and three children.
