Arts Emergency

Joanna Loveday

Artist, writer and Arts Marketing

I manage Alumni Relations and Development for Leeds College of Art. Working with Marketing, Partnerships and Professional Engagement and Internationalisation teams, as well as current teaching staff and students, I manage a host of alumni events and communications.

Previous to my current role, I worked for West Yorkshire Playhouse within a communications capacity for 4 years, and in that time opened up two new areas of important work for the theatre. Firstly as Audience Engagement Officer working with local community groups and schools, and secondly in supporting organisational and culture change through the Action Research Project as Communications Manager.

I am also the co-director of COPY, an artists publishing platform which received Grants for the Arts funding from the Arts Council to deliver writing projects in the Yorkshire region 2012 – 2013.

I am an artist and writer, when I find the time outside all of these other roles!
