Team

Hello! We are IVE.  We’ve been around a long time now and we’ve got a real passion for creativity and the transformative power this has on people so they can reach their true potential.  Creativity is not just about the arts but a life-long skill through which we can inspire and engage our young people. 

We’re lucky to have an amazing staff team that are drawn from schools, colleges, universities, arts organisations as well as the private sector. They have a wealth of experience and expertise from the arts, creative, education and business sectors.

The one thing that unites all our staff is their passion and belief in the power of creativity to change lives. You can take a look at us here.
