Hattie (she/her) is the new Administrator for Future Everything who will work on streamlining the data collection of our audiences, staff and partners as well as supporting the daily operations for project delivery. She will support the development and management of data gathering models to help us understand the people we work and engage with more deeply.
Previously, Hattie was the Jerwood Arts Creative Bursaries Fellow for Manchester Museum, and Creative Producer for their South Asia Gallery to actively diversify their programmes and pool of creatives. Since completing this placement, she has continued working with Manchester Museum, currently co-ordinating their music mentorship programme in partnership with the Indian Music Experience Museum and the British Council. She has also worked with Wigan Council as their Engagement Officer for the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, connecting and embedding communities into the tournament’s cultural projects in Wigan and Leigh.
Outside of work, Hattie is a sculpture artist whose practice largely looks to transform chairs found on the street or from recycling sites into whimsical characters and surreal structures, reacting to their salvage from landfill. Most recently, she won the audience vote for favourite artwork at Cotton On Mcr’s ‘In Manchester’ group exhibition, winning her first solo exhibition due to take place in September 2022. Other highlights include being nominated for the Castlefield Artist Development Award 2 at HOME’s ‘Manchester Open’ 2022 exhibition, and a current recipient of Curious Minds’ ‘Bubble Up’ commission to enable emerging diverse artists to develop their career as facilitators, empowering children and young people to engage in the arts.
She is also the Head of Communications & Co-ordinator of Terra Movement, an online platform encouraging ecological activism through a community of illustrators, artists and creatives, studio member at 1520 Studios and member of Horizons Collective, a community of East & South East Asian creatives based in the North West.
