Recently graduated with a high 2:1 in Art History from the University of Nottingham. Soon to be moving to Scotland to study at the University of Glasgow for my MLitt in Art History: Dress & Textile Histories. During my undergraduate degree I was made director of the university's leading student-run curatorial collective, 'Crop Up Gallery', where I devised exhibitions & organized fundraisers and events. I've also worked as a paid blogger on a student site, Liberty Living, as well as writing freelance on my own blog - 'millyemilia' on WordPress. I have also previously worked for arts festivals, arts school programmes and given talks about studying Art History as an undergraduate.
