A little about me

I'm a freelancer arts and cultural researcher, working with a small portfolio of arts initiatives and ventures. I was Director 1999-2014 at a-n The Artists Information Company . It's a non-profit arts business with a mission to stimulate and support contemporary visual arts practice and affirm artists’ value in society. I moved this traditional book and magazine publishing company into the 21st Century, utlising imaginative applications of Web 2.0 technology to nurture and sustain its communities of interest and support cultural advocacy.

As an expert contributor on artists’ livelihoods and professional development matters within UK, I contribute to UK and international peer networks including Paradox, Interartes, CreativePeople and N-Ten. I'm active in the Cultural Values Initiative.

I've served on committees including Arts Council of Great Britain, Northern Arts, Visual Arts and Galleries Association and Northern Cultural Skills Partnership and have provided evidence to the CMS Select Committee Inquiry into the Market for Art (2006) and Funding to the Arts Council (2014) and Arts Council reviews including on artists’ livelihoods (2002), Turning Point (2006) and RFO Peer Review (2009).

I served on the RSA Fellowship Council in its early years. I hope my involvement in the RSA will extend my knowledge outside the arts world and be part of dialogues around broader society issues including sustainability, citizenship and well-being.
