Emma firmly believes that meaningful arts and cultural experiences can positively impact lives. For over 14 years, she has managed and delivered creative learning programmes with and for people from a variety of backgrounds. Career highlights include shaping Derby Theatre's 'Learning Theatre' as their first Creative Learning Associate, working with women in prison with Clean Break Theatre Company and working in the communities of Hounslow while she managed the Creative People and Places (ACE) programme there.
Emma has previously been a Trustee for the London Waterways Partnership, Canal and River Trust. She has also volunteered for Stonewall, the leading LGBTQ+ Charity and Alzheimer's Research UK; most recently coordinating 'The Great Race for Alzheimer's' in Hull where teams of people raced for 17 hours around the city completing challenges on their journey.
In her spare time, Emma loves to try new things, adventuring with her baby, listening to stories from family and friends and reading.
