Lucy Sharp – CEO, Art Shape

Lucy has worked for 12 years in the private sector in a large global textiles company in the areas of technical support, sales and marketing.  This included preparation, design, planning and execution of international product shows in Paris and Florence and budget management of £0.5M.

Following on from this Lucy has 10 years’ experience of managing Art Shape, a charity whose purpose is to make the arts accessible for those facing barriers to mainstream participation.  This includes staff team management, financial management, HR and H&S responsibilities, fundraising, strategic planning and general management.

Lucy also links into the national disability network allowing her a national view of disability arts strategy and objectives.  She is looking to utilise these skills and experiences to further the arts in the county of Gloucestershire through an active role within the Create Gloucestershire board of directors.
