Arts advocate and podcast host
A champion of research-based championship of the Arts.
Hi there, I'm Paula, a Brighton-based champion of the arts and the enthusiastic host behind the scenes at CanArtSaveUs.
Usually, I'm the one firing off the questions, but recently, the tables turned, and I found myself in the hot seat for a change with Mark, our founder. And let me tell you, it was an absolute blast! Watch it here.
During our chat, you can expect a healthy dose of laughter, some intriguing anecdotes, and perhaps even a surprise or two. We'll dive into my work, explore my top ten picks in arts and culture, delve into my fantasy cultural year, and maybe even play a round of This or That.
I'm passionate about podcasting because it allows me to amplify diverse voices and showcase the pivotal role that the arts play in our society. Through CanArtSaveUs, I aim to challenge stereotypes and highlight the accessibility and relevance of artistic expression.
But my advocacy doesn't stop with the podcast. I actively seek partnerships with academia to drive impactful research initiatives and effect positive change. With experience spanning various facets of the arts world, from small organizations to national museums, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table.
Whether it's my tenure as Head of Digital at NW Vision + Media or my role with the Homeless Film Festival, my career has been marked by a dedication to innovation and social impact. I've been fortunate to receive recognition for my work, but for me, the real reward lies in reshaping the narrative and unlocking the transformative power of the arts for all.
So, join me on this journey as we explore the intersection of art, culture, and advocacy. Let's challenge perceptions and ignite conversations that lead to meaningful change. You can connect with me on LinkedIn, visit my website, or drop me an email—I'd love to hear from you. Together, let's show the world that art can indeed save us.
