This contemporary ceramics festival takes place in Stoke-on-Trent every two years, embracing the heritage of the city as the home of British ceramics and celebrating its creative edge. I work closely with the team to devise and deliver international PR campaigns around each festival. The next edition will be in 2019.

Craft Central at The Croft

Craft Central has supported making in the UK for 40 years by providing creative studios, organising exhibitions and events and giving professional development support.

In September 2017, Craft Central moved to a Victorian forge in the Isle of Dogs, East London, bringing design and making back to this area of traditional industry. I led an integrated communications campaign to raise its profile as it began a 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.

HMS Belfast - an iconic London landmark and unique witness to 20th century conflict - is one of the Imperial War Museum’s five branches. In March 2018 the ship turned 80, and to celebrate, veterans came together for a media moment that resulted in blanket national newspaper and TV coverage. Major outside broadcasts were set up with BBC Breakfast Weather, ITV This Morning and BBC London Robert Elms. I worked closely with the IWM in-house team to shape and deliver this high-level campaign.

An international PR campaign to launch the UK-wide programme of exhibitions, and events to celebrate the centenary of the birth of 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. My brief was to use the media to creatively tell the story of Nolan’s life and work and to raise awareness of the work of the Sidney Nolan 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 worked with the gallery to publicise the fourth edition of the prize and to raise the profile of the gallery and prize founder, Cynthia Corbett.
