Short bio: Claire has over 20 years of experience in leading cultural strategy and collaborative partnerships and joined the team in 2015 from the Foundation for FutureLondon (previously The Legacy List) where she led the creative vision for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. During this time, she curated a programme delivering over 30 projects through a series of strategic partnerships which secured the cultural legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Claire’s relationship with the Park started in 2008 when she was integral to a pioneering team embedding permanent arts and culture into the fabric of the Park during its construction. Before this she spent eight years at Arts Council England building up a knowledge of charity governance, artform policy and an impressive network.
Claire is Chair of Queens Theatre Hornchurch and on the Board of Greenwich + Docklands International Festival and Chelmsford Cultural Development Trust. She is also a mentor to young female creatives and enjoys being commissioned to make elaborate and creative cakes!
