She has a background in contemporary art and socially-engaged practice, and has experience in delivering exhibitions, public programmes and artist commissions, working with Create London, V&A East, London Metropolitan Archives, Museum of the Home, UK New Artists and gal-dem, Wellcome Collection amongst others.

She is enthusiastic about contemporary interventions in heritage spaces, and art encountered in the everyday, public realm. Kirsty is excited to join the Culture& team as Administrator and to continue supporting the organisation with its vision to make the Arts truly reflective of our society.
