I joined FACT in August 2007 as Gallery Assistant which led to the role of Gallery Supervisor. I moved into FACT's Engagement team in 2008, and have been working as the Schools and Learning Coordinator ever since. My role is to devise and deliver a full programme that embeds creativity and innovation within the National Curriculum whilst empowering teachers and learners to use cutting edge media in their work. The programme achieves this through a diverse mix of film education events, workshops programmes, artist/student commissions, discussions and visits. I particularly enjoy working on the delivery of interpretation spaces for FACT exhibitions. Working with school groups and artists to develop interactive access points for shows is always challenging and exciting! In my spare time one of my favorite things to do is grab a giant cup of coffee and head to the cinema - so it is quite handy being based in FACT HQ!
