Head of Culture - Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives

I started as the Head of Culture for Bristol City Council in January 2015. I have moved here from Warwickshire where I was the interim Heritage and Culture Manager for the County Council. This was a service which covers a similar mix of services to here including the Museums and Archives, Arts, Archaeology and Ecology teams. Before that my background is mainly in Museums and particularly Museum education and I have moved around a bit having worked in Yorkshire, Liverpool, Lancashire and then Warwickshire where I had been for the past 7 years firstly as the Head of Heritage Education and then as the Interim Service Manager.  As the Head of Culture I have responsibility for our 5 Museums- Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, M Shed, Red Lodge, Georgian House and Blaise Castle House Museum, as well as our Modern and Historic Archives, Arts and Event Team, Film Office and Environmental Record centre. It’s a challenging role but one I am truly enjoying.
