I love being a cultural project manager! I like facilitating multiple projects and tasks and finding innovative ways to promote culture and history and to train others to get involved. I deliver work for arts organisations, theatres, heritage organisations, libraries and universities amongst others. My special focus too is heritage and reminiscence.

Through heritage coordination with national and regional organisations and as freelance reminiscence facilitators for numerous clients, I have gathered many years of capable, dedicated experience.
These include for organisations including reminiscence charity Age Exchange and also V & A Museum of Childhood, with children and young people, and the over 55s to promote heritage and social history exhibitions though oral history recordings, intergenerational activities and reminiscence workshops, resulting in ‘memory quilts’, plays, exhibitions, interactive tea services and heritage websites to record memories of the way we used to live.
Previous projects include a partnership oral history project with Brighton Museum, creative heritage engagement as project coordinator for Royal Voluntary Service, a three year project with English Heritage setting up new programmes of Heritage Open Days (with a focus on accessibility) through their Community Outreach department, and experience as Development Manager for Kingston based environmental arts charity Save the World.
Having finished a Heritage Lottery Funded Lewes based project Ale and Hearty in 2014 about ale and brewing, I piloted a short term programme called Breaking Bread (2015) in Brighton, celebrating bread, baking and Sussex traditions related to this theme. I worked on The Boys on the Plaque project, an HLF funded two year programme with Fabrica gallery and Brighton and Hove Libraries.
Other roles include working as Volunteer Coordinator for the City Reads project from Collected Works.
