Arts Emergency

Frances Brown

Designer/ Educator

I have experience of textile, jewellery and fashion industry, manufacture and retail and used have a shop specialising in the sale of graduate art, design and craft work.

I now practice design research and development for creative businesses and with universities to develop better programmes for creative students building their skills and career strategies.

I am volunteering for Arts Emergency because I understand what it is to feel the drive and passion for creative learning and expression and the importance of arts education for the sake of the student and for our society. I understand the challenges faced by students at university and beyond and have plenty of stories and tips to share from myself and my network that will reassure students that they are not alone in problems they might face and give them ways to tackle them.
