Molly is based at Polesden Lacey, a large Edwardian house and estate owned by the National Trust just outside Dorking. This is an exciting time at the property as the National Trust is celebrating its 125th Anniversary and Molly will be working in conservation, interpretation and education as well as curating social media platforms. Having recently graduated from the University of Southampton where she studied English and Politics, Molly undertook internships in various arts organisations including a regional theatre and music venues. From here, her interest in increasing accessibility within the arts and heritage sector was fostered and in particular she became interested in the relationship between politics, art & heritage. Outside of her traineeship, Molly also writes articles for various freelance publications, focusing on intersectional feminism and most recently has explored the experiences of Irish women and non-binary people in relation to the restriction of reproductive rights. Molly is looking forward to building her conservation skills as well as gaining more practical experience in interpretation and outreach throughout the course of her traineeship.
