Governance Enquiry cohort announced

Governance Enquiry cohort announced

Since 2022, Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy has delivered a series of enquiries in relation to challenging areas of arts, culture and heritage fundraising, with a view to informing future policy and research.

We are delighted to be able to announce the selected cohort that will form our Governance Enquiry: 

Laura Gabe
Senior Development Manager, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts

Clare Purcell
Executive Director, Meadow Arts

Sarah Emmott
Creative Director, Art with Heart

Yvonne Hepburn-Foster
Trusts & Foundations Manager, Factory International

Jessye Parke
Head of Development, Institute of Contemporary Arts

Paula Dower
Operations Director, DASH Arts

Bryony Hope
Head of Communications & Development, DanceEast

Helen Abeles
Co-Director, Soft Touch Arts

Kerry Andrews
Executive Director, Level Centre

The focus of the Governance Enquiry is about how to support all Trustees to overcome some of the barriers to performance and engagement that might arise from the expectations from the Charity Commission as the key regulator and those outlined by funders.

The output will be a short publication outlining policy ideas and suggestions for key funders where all participants will be co-authors and credited for their participation.
