Recent projects

In December 2007 I assessed the National Trust’s application for a Europa Nostra award for their Footprint Project visitor centre in Windermere, Cumbria. This extraordinary building sets new standards for combining sustainable materials and inspirational design.

In November I joined Euclid, the UK’s EU cultural agency, for a feasibility study of the Mediterranean Art Project, commissioned by the Malta Ministry of Culture and Tourism. This is a 15m euros scheme promoting culture-led tourism and urban regeneration in Valletta and includes the creation of a sculpture park and craft village in an historic site.

I was commissioned by a major art gallery in the West Midlands to design and manage a Benchmarking Survey on salaries for gallery Visitor Services staff, involving nearly 30 venues. This was successfully delivered in November and is being used as part of a review to improve public services.

I became a Curatorial Advisor for the MLA North West in September, giving me an opportunity to work with organisations in the region.
