Main details

Department Sociology
Occupation Capital Campaign Manager, Royal Academy of Arts, freelance curator & artist

"I'm the Project Manager of the Royal Academy of Arts' multi-million pound fundraising campaign to redevelop the historic Burlington House and 6 Burlington Gardens buildings. My role encompasses strategic planning and financial forecasting, underpinned by project management techniques. I'm also involved in encouraging philanthropists to support the campaign, which involves approaching potential funders and assisting with large-scale cultivation events.

My MA at Goldsmiths provided me with the basic project management skills I now utilise on a daily basis, along with the confidence to grapple with complex issues and tasks. These transferable skills have been invaluable to me. Alongside my role at the Royal Academy I also continue to develop my own practice and I'm working on a number of freelance curatorial projects, including a recent exhibition at Down Stairs Gallery in Hereford. The environment at Goldsmiths increased my confidence in my own ideas, which has helped me in approaching other people to become involved in bringing my ideas to fruition."
