Juliette is a creative learning consultant with twenty years experience of freelance working in the cultural sector as an educator, project manager and evaluator. She is passionate about increasing opportunities for people to engage with art and artists and projects that bring people together around a new idea to enable creative agency.
Her project portfolio includes The Sound Mirrors Project a conceptual artwork by artist Lise Autogena developed with school children in East Kent; Wonderful: Visions of a Near Future an art/science touring project curated by Clare Cumberlidge for Nesta/Wellcome Trust with schools and UWE; Lives at War, an intergenerational heritage project using gaming and archive material to learn about life on the home front during WW2 and Artworks: Young Artists of the Year Awards managed by the Clore Duffield Foundation.
As an evaluator, Juliette led evaluation of the interpretive devices in the British Galleries for the Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as for Helix a collaborative digital graphic novel by artists David Blandy and Daniel Locke for Lighthouse, Connective Cultures developing new relationships between schools and the digital sector in Eastbourne for Towner Gallery, and Viewfinder led by This is Wyld creating showcasing opportunities for 49 moving image artists across East Asia.
For some years she has led the learning & engagement programme for Photoworks - an international platform for photography that produces Brighton Photo Biennial. Juliette established a well regarded, artist-led programme for a diverse range of audiences, contributing to the development of this National Portfolio Organisation. Achievements include programming nearly half of the 2016 festival with work by children & young people, and the organisation attaining ‘outstanding’ rating for diversity, (among only 7% of Arts Council-funded organisations) recognising it’s work with marginalised groups and hard to reach children & young people.
Juliette is a trained teacher with a background in visual arts practice. Over the years she has created a portfolio of learning resources for clients such as De La Warr Pavilion, British Film Institute and Turner Contemporary. She is a recipient of the Marsh Award for Excellence in Gallery Education (2017), part of the Extend Leadership Programme (2019) and an editorial advisory board member for the Engage Journal.
