A main focus of my role is the Culture Grants - Wakefield Council's funding scheme for Wakefield District-based artists, arts organisations and local communities, supporting cultural and creative arts and heritage activity to happen across the District.What steps did you take to get where you are now?I studied BA Fine Art at the University of Leeds and during my time at university I volunteered on many arts and culture projects; assisting artists and curators, outreach programmes, galleries and events. I joined the Backstage Society where I worked on sets for student shows and in my second year, I was Publicity and Communications Secretary for the society, in charge of social media and promotion. Throughout my studies and since graduating, I've also been a volunteer member of the young curators group, the 'Preservative Party' at Leeds City Museum, through which I gained experience in researching, designing, curating and installing museum exhibitions. In my final year at university I worked part-time as a Programme Assistant/Gallery Supervisor at the Tetley, a contemporary art gallery and events centre in Leeds. A few months after graduating, I began my first full-time role as an Archive Assistant for the West Yorkshire Archive Service. I was very lucky to have such a unique and privileged role, being able to work with historic records from the 1100s up to the present day on a daily basis. I saw my new role of Cultural Development Coordinator advertised at Wakefield Council and I thought it was a perfect job, allowing me to use all of the skillsets that I have developed over the years in arts, culture and heritage. I am also an artist, though you could say I have had a bit of a hiatus in the last few years.
