My work with Arts/ Heritage Organisations

Oral History with 96 year old Jack and family at Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island

Claire has over 15 years experience of working with Arts, Heritage and Creative organisations and is  hugely passionate about her work and the community connections and creativity enabled.

She works clients who have passion to engage children and young people in their programmes, to inspire hearts and minds and really care about pushing creativity in their environment.

Claire is an expert project manager offering programme management, affordable consultancy, facilitation, staff/ artist mentoring and staff personal development.

In the last 7 years, Claire has raised over £700,000 from a wide portfolio of funders including Arts Council England, Community Foundation, Ernest Cook Trust Trusts and individual philanthropists as well as working with funding specialists to enable arts engagement for tens of thousands of participants.

In 2019, a group of young people Claire supported won a prestigious Journal Culture Award for their leadership of a project called Colour to the Grey.
