Arts Emergency

Sophie Powell


After graduating from university in 2001 and found it difficult to find a path until I began to work for a local arts organisation. I found that working with other people, exploring and working creatively in the community extremely rewarding.
I’m particularly interested in Free Schools and the capacity for knowledge sharing in the community. I don’t feel as if I do enough of this, so volunteering for Arts Emergency is important to allow this sharing to happen more within the art world, without boundaries, pretension and to support for people early in their careers.
