I joined AAM in November 2016 as Learning and Participation Coordinator for our IMPs (Inclusive Music Project). That means I support the young people who take part with their learning and development. I also organize all the paperwork for the project, keep in touch with the participants, and develop new parts of the project, such as organizing holiday clubs and performances. As part of my role, I’m an Arts Award Advisor and support our young people in gaining Arts Award qualifications. I’ve done all sorts of jobs over the years, from managing projects for small businesses and working in a school office to freelance writing and working for the police as a press officer! I love jobs with plenty of variety and my role here is different every day. Outside of work I run a holiday art club for kids and love getting involved in anything creative that’s happening in and around York.
