Co - production and Engagement Manager
Meet Andrea, our Co – production and Engagement Manager. To find out more about Andrea, we asked her some questions and here is what she had to say…
- Many of the people that Joseph Wright painted chose to be depicted with an object that tells us something about them as a person. What object would you choose and why?
A pencil and a notebook, I’m always sketching thoughts and ideas. I have a sketchbook beside my bed so I can record ideas that wake me in the night and usually have a pencil nestling in my hair or behind my ear ready for action.
- If you could be any animal from the Nature Gallery, which would you be and why?
I’m happy being a human but would love to experience what it’s like to be each one of the sky or land dwellers for an hour each. To fly, to whistle, climb a tree, squeak, climb a blade of grass. I wouldn’t be happy under the water though.
- What makes you happy?
Too many things to list. Too many people to list. Too many moments to list. Playing in sunrays, field, lakes and open spaces, bird song, sitting in a tree with my son, new places, new people, familiar places, familiar people, going to gigs, being close to my husband, bare foot dog walks, long exploratory conversations, solitude, company, reading in the bath when everyone else is asleep, doing something that changes a negative to a positive in someone else’s life and my son my son my son. See, too many.
- What do you love to do in your spare time? (Aside from working at the museum, obviously)
Play. Take photographs. Sketch. Walk my dog. Watch films.
