Arts Emergency

Joanna Wolfarth

PhD Candidate/ Freelance Writer/ Tutor

I’m a PhD researcher in the field of history of art (with some philosophy and Buddhist studies thrown in), with experience of working in Cambodia as a freelance writer, journalist, researcher and fundraiser at an arts NGO. I came from a comprehensive that was skeptical of the value in studying the arts at university and had career advisers vocally discourage me from pursuing a career in journalism. I might not be rolling in money, but I couldn’t be happier with the journey my BA in Philosophy and History of Art has taken me on.
