My Voluntary Work

From 2010 to 2012 I was on the Boards of Déda, Craftspace and Broadway Cinema.

I am currently Chair of two charities, The Mighty Creatives and Upstart Projects and on the Advisory Board of Attenborough Arts Centre.

The Mighty Creatives

The Mighty Creatives aims to develop more opportunities for children and young people to fulfil their creative potential. The organisation was founded in 2009 and works with schools, the full cultural sector and businesses to make this happen. TMC is funded by Arts Council England as a Bridge organisation, promoting and supporting Artsmark and Arts Award as development tools and also investing in strategic initiatives such as Cultural Education Partnerships across the East Midlands.

Upstart Projects

Upstart Projects is a new charity which creates opportunities in the arts for young people, promoting them as leaders and activists. We run media projects, including Voicemag.uk, a website which gives young people a chance to express their opinions about arts and culture and we support Arts Award online with Arts Award on Voice. https://www.voicemag.uk/ We train young people as critics and journalists, for example supporting a team of young reporters at events such as Edinburgh Fringe and Brighton Festival.
