We had our first meeting with our brand new board last week, well, all bar one as Trustee Chris Morris was away working. See you next time Chris!
The meeting, which took place in Exeter, saw us working together on future plans and officially welcoming two new members.
“It was great to get everyone together in one space, welcome two new Trustees and talk about our future projects. We’ve got work taking shape in Cornwall and further afield, definitely busy and exciting times ahead. ” Emma Hogg, CEO, WildWorks
The two new board members are Sud Basu and Dr Frances Branfield. Sud, a creative producer, has previously worked with the company in his role with 1418-NOW, the commissioning body for national WWI commemorations.
Former Director of Cairn Community Partnership, Cornwall based Frances, joins as our accessibility champion having previously served on many boards including the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. She is also the voluntary CEO of Cornish charity Blind at Sea.
“We’re really grateful to our board for their time and support. Each member brings a different set of skills and perspective which really helps us achieve our ambitions to create great art that is easily accessible to all. We’re really looking forward to officially launching our new strands of work.” Emma
