I have written and presented papers at the International Conference on Arts and Cultural Management (AIMAC) in 2013 and 2011, and co-authored several refereed articles. I won best paper at the Thought Leaders in Brand Management Conference in Switzerland in 2010 and was a recipient of a Leeds Anniversary Research Scholarship in 2016. Since commencing my PhD at the University of Leeds I have been a Research Assistant on the Ask the Audience – British Academy research project with Dr Leila Jancovich and has been an Event Coordinator for the International Network for Audience Research in the Performing Arts. My PhD research explores how regional arts centres are valued and perceived by key stakeholders, including: arts centre staff; arts centre funders; audiences; and the community. Via developing an understanding of the role and purpose of regional arts centres the study will provide insight into whether the arts centre model is a suitable way in which to provide arts and culture to regional areas in England and Australia.
