What I do

Emma managed the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts on behalf of the partner organisations Arts Council England and the Art and Humanities Research Council. 


She has over 16 years’ experience working in the commercial digital media sector, the public arts sector and more recently in arts funding.
After completing her MA in Digital Arts at Middlesex University in 1997 Emma combined her interests in art and technology in a career that has included work at the Millennium Dome, The Institute of Contemporary Arts, OgilvyAction , The Wellcome Trust and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
She has been invited onto judging panels for media art competitions, has spoken at international conferences and has written about the sector for industry publications.
In 2012 Emma was invited to join the board of the art organisation motiroti as a non-executive director. motiroti create art and cultural projects, utilising technology, that provide voice, visibility, connectivity and opportunity to migrant communities within the UK and cities around the world.
Content is King, but monetising that content is common sense. We explore what distribution and business models can do for the cultural sector.
