Alice Gawthrop

Digital Media and Marketing Assistant

Having recently graduated with a BA in English Literature and an MA in Social Research, my time at university has equipped me with a personal love of the arts and a deeper understanding of tackling social challenges through research and intervention. 

I have previously worked with an organisation that used the arts to rehabilitate offenders in prisons, through which I gained a valuable insight into the transformative power of the arts. This experience made me think that the arts need to be more accessible, so that art can be a first port of call for tackling social challenges rather than a last resort. 

I am excited to support Art at the Heart CIC in continuing to create a community where the arts are open to everyone.
