Aoibheann supports a network of educational settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education and embed creativity across their whole curriculum, through Artsmark.
Originally from Northern Ireland and now based in Leeds, Aoibheann has been working in the arts and cultural sector for almost twenty years, with experience as a teacher, performer, consultant, practitioner, and manager in a multitude of different settings including theatres, hospitals, schools and communities. She has much experience in using theatre and drama as a catalyst to raise awareness about important issues, drive change and fully believes in the arts’ capacity to transform, illuminate and galvanise.
Her experience as a teacher and school governor has enabled Aoibheann to develop a detailed understanding of the challenges schools face but also about the incredible possibilities forging new partnerships and applying creative approaches can bring for young people and educators alike.
As a side note, Aoibheann also plays the Harp.
