My work with Arts/ Heritage Organisations

I have over 15 years experience of working with Arts, Heritage and Creative organisations and I’m hugely passionate about my work and the community connections and creativity enabled through them.

I work with 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.

I am an expert project manager offering programme management, affordable consultancy, facilitation, staff/ artist mentoring, engagement and organisational/ staff development.

I am passionate about environmental issues, creativity, working digitally and the resilience of the arts sector.

I’ve also supported lots of individual ACE funded artists and creatives in a range of ways.

In the last 7 years, I have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds from a wide portfolio of funders including Arts Council England, Community Foundation, Ernest Cook Trust Trust and individual philanthropists as well as working with funding specialists to enable arts engagement for tens of thousands of participants across the North East of England.

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