What I do

Anna was part of the Digital Arts and Media team and was responsible for the delivery of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts on behalf of the partner organisations Arts Council England and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. 


Prior to her time at Nesta, she worked for 12 years at Arts Council England (ACE) providing advice and guidance on organisational development and change management to arts organisations. She delivered a series of grant programmes to help organisations recover or grow their businesses. While at ACE she also worked as a Programme Manager on the smooth absorption of museums and libraries functions and on a major internal organisational review and restructure process. 

She is passionate about the arts and has extensive experience of working with arts trustees on board development, including a period as a board member of Shams, a touring theatre company. She is learning the ropes as a primary school governor and is a willing, if unskilled, contributor to school cake sales.
