Marie Millward

6th July 2018 - Jenny Moscrop

Marie is the Project Manager for Ignite Yorkshire, a four-year Heritage Lottery Funded consortium project to make strong, sustainable connections between young people and industrial heritage.

Before joining IVE in late 2017, Marie worked freelance for almost a decade as a project manager and consultant working with a range of public, private and third sector organisations on community projects, with arts, environmental, creative technology and place-making themes. Marie specialises in partnership working and projects connecting people with waterways. She worked in a variety of roles throughout her 10+ years working for British Waterways as an events manager, environmental specialist, and heritage advocate, regeneration project manager, securing funding and delivering grant-funded projects.

Marie has been involved in setting up a number of community groups and a charity supporting young people’s participation in outdoor activities. She is currently a Trustee of Compass Festival – a biannual live art festival in Leeds.

Her interests include ecology and gardening, watching live music and, alongside (but rapidly being left behind by) her children, learning to code.
