What I do
Georgina works in the Innovation Skills team as a Learning Services Manager. She leads Nesta's Creative Enterprise Programme, a capacity building programme to support communiteis of Creative Entrepreneurs, delivered in partnership with the British Council. In addition to this, Georgina is leading the development of a new learning offer, designed specifically for Creative Hub leaders.
Before joining Nesta, Georgina managed projects for social enterprise Bootstrap Company, a creative hub in Dalston, London. Bootstrap provides workspace, events and learning programmes for creative and social entrepreneurs, with a model that directly correlates rent rates to social impact achieved.
A creative producer by background, Georgina is passionate about supporting creative communities to be driven by social impact through their work, and has a particular interest in the role that events and artistic practice have to play in this space. Currently a volunteer with Hackney Pirates, and Chatsworth Road Residents Association, she's inspired by organisations taking a creative approach to tackling social issues.
Before living in London, Georgina studied at the University of Edinburgh, in her native Scotland, where she also enjoyed five years working at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
