The Transported Team were very sad to lose two permanent members of staff last year—Art Engagement Workers Laura Kavanagh and Frankie Wing to a dazzling new life in Paris and to a new job working with Jasmin Vardimon in Kent respectively. Simon Hollingworth also finished his consultancy position with us in October and is now working on a variety of different projects within Lincolnshire. We wish them all the best in their new positions and hope they will keep in touch! We are delighted to welcome five new members of staff on board:
Richard Erwin-Jones—Arts Manager
Following a career change away from Project Management in a US Bank, Richard gained over 10 years’ experience of Arts Management in the East Midlands. This has included roles in: Resource Development for Arts Council England; Communications for Nottingham Arts Theatre, Nottinghamshire County Council and Curve Theatre; leading the Creative Regeneration Programme for Groundwork East Midlands and more recently Project Manager at Cultivate; the East Midland’s Audience and Organisational development agency.
Elizabeth Bergeron—Arts Engagement Worker, leading on Past Inspired and Community Events
