Hello! I’m joining Metal from my role as Managing Director at Gasworks and Triangle Network, bringing experience working in the visual arts sector, collaborating with artists, international partners, and community members to develop fundraising initiatives and artistic programmes. I’m currently a Trustee at Queercircle, and until recently co-chair of Deptford X arts festival. Prior to joining Gasworks, I worked at Matt’s Gallery and the Tate Modern where I supported the Tanks live performance and film programme, as well as the development of the new Tate Modern capital project. I feel extremely fortunate to work in the arts and am very passionate about widening access to participation and promoting social action. I am a member of an evaluation research group of educators and policy makers, which supports the development of artists who work within social practice and positive change. I am a big podcast fan and would encourage everyone to listen to ‘Death of an Artist’ and ‘True Currency: About Feminist Economics.
