The purpose of What Next?

Broad aim: to find new ways of engaging with our audience and visitors: the ever-expanding millions who value and take part in the cultural work that happens day-in, day-out up and down this country.

Guiding star: to encourage the people of this country, as individuals and as communities, to see connections between the many different ways art and culture affect and enhance our lives; to urge everyone to register their endorsement of – and pleasure in – their art and culture, especially where these are under threat.

Before this, she was Acting Head of SME Policy at ACCA Global, researching innovations in finance, and, Policy and Research Manager at Social Enterprise UK – the latter has fostered a lasting interest in how business affects societal values and norms, and how to evaluate impact.
