About me
I am a graduate of the University of York having achieved BA History of Art. I am going on to complete a masters in History of Art: Fashion Documenting at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. From my experience with non-profit arts organisations, I have gathered a specialist interest in arts education and arts outreach. I am primarily concerned with producing and promoting platforms that challenge ideas of access. I am currently looking to develop my digital marketing, writing and communication skills as well as learn more about the production of arts organisations within a professional, creative environment.
