Jessica is now working with Y Lab.

I work on Y Lab's Arts and Health programme where we are working with Arts Council Wales to explore how arts interventions can play a more prominent role in the health and wellbeing of people in Wales. HARP is about supporting innovation and learning and we are aiming to learn more about how the arts can help health and care systems with their biggest challenges during Covid-19.

Before joining HARP, I worked as Programme Coordinator for Nesta's team based in Scotland, where I assisted in the design and delivery of projects such as 'AI for Good' and 'Future Visions of a Green Economic Recovery'.

Prior to Nesta, I was working for the Humanitarian Academy for Development (part of Islamic Relief Worldwide) as a Programme and Grants Coordinator. I completed an MA in Religion, Conflict and Globalisation in 2016 at the University of Groningen, with an interest in migrant and religious identity.
