New Learning and Inclusion Staff
There are two new members of the Learning and Inclusion team at Liverpool Biennial, joining Judy Thomas as Programme Manager – Franny George has started as Partnership Co-ordinator (Learning and Inclusion), and Ros Hyde as Learning and Inclusion Programme Assistant. Franny will be focusing on developing and maintaining relations between Liverpool Biennial and Merseyside community groups and individuals. Ros will be working across the Learning and Inclusion Department and building on the successful Visitor Programme.
Both Ros and Franny are practising artists in Liverpool, and have worked for Liverpool Biennial before. Ros co-ordinated the visitor programme for the 2006 festival – managing fusebox and the talks and tours programme. Franny worked as a freelance project manager on the schools’ project in 2006, as well as working on projects in 2002.
Ros and Franny join the Biennial at an exciting and challenging time. Celebrated as the deliverer of Liverpool’s International Festival of Contemporary Art, the organisation now operates as a visual arts agency delivering a range of projects year round.
Liverpool Biennial has achieved extraordinary growth in the last six years, not least through its Learning and Inclusion Programme’s committed delivery of educational objectives through a year round programme of activities and the festival programme: working with communities, formal education networks and visitors.
