The British Ceramics Biennial is a contemporary ceramics festival taking place in Stoke-on-Trent every two years. The six-week long programme of exhibitions and events embraces the heritage of the city as the home of British ceramics and celebrates its creative edge as an international centre for excellence in contemporary ceramics. I am working with the team on the PR for the fifth edition of the festival, which launched on 23 September.

Craft Central at The Croft

Craft Central has supported craftsmanship and craftspeople in the UK for 40 years by providing creative studios and shared workspaces, organising exhibitions and events and giving professional development support for its network of 700 designer-makers.

In September, they moved to a Victorian forge in the Isle of Dogs, East London, bringing design and making back to this area of traditional industry. I have been leading a communications campaign to raise the profile of Craft Central as it begins this new chapter in its history.

This radical £37m arts and social change programme initiated by Arts Council England is based in 21 areas of the country with traditionally low levels of arts engagement. The programme is increasing connections to culture and creativity and contributing to social change by inviting people to choose, create and take part in brilliant art experiences where they live. I worked with the team to devise and deliver a national PR strategy to tell the powerful story behind the programme.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, portrait and documentary photographer Matt Writtle has published 'Sunday: A Portrait of 21st Century England', which documents what people in England do on a Sunday – the traditional day of rest - given that only 2% of them go to church.

I am working with Matt to launch his book and accompanying exhibition, and to position him as a commentator on the changing nature of Sundays and how we spend our leisure time.

This internationally renowned arts institution is undergoing a £50 million redevelopment, which will be completed in time for its 250th anniversary in 2018. I worked with the team to help keep the redevelopment story alive through corporate profile raising, creative storytelling and public relations. At the end of 2016, I also worked with the press office to launch a major exhibition of work by Belgian painter James Ensor, which was curated by the contemporary artist Luc Tuymans.

A UK-wide programme of exhibitions, events and publications organised by the Sidney Nolan Trust to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the artist Sidney Nolan, one of the leading figures of 20th century art. Born in Australia, Nolan came to the UK in the early 50s and remained here until his death 40 years later. He spent his last few years living at The Rodd in Herefordshire, which is now home to the Sidney Nolan Trust. My brief is to use the media to creatively tell the story of Nolan’s life and work and to raise awareness of the work of the Trust.

A not-for-profit initiative launched by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery in 2009, the Young Masters Art Prize celebrates and promotes the work of contemporary artists whose work pays homage to the Old Masters. I am working with the gallery to publicise the fourth edition of the prize and to raise the profile of the gallery and prize founder, Cynthia Corbett.
