Helen Dickson, Project Manager
Based in North Shropshire, Helen will be responsible for the overall financial management of the project. Organisation skills and attention to detail will ensure easy to audit records. In addition, all contractual arrangements will be made with Helen, allowing both the Curator and Coordinator to concentrate on their tasks and separate the authorities within the management team. Helen will contribute to the creation of briefs, interview processes and written content. Finally, her other assignment will be to maintain and generate interest in the second part of this project - Building and Putting into Practice.
Ania Bas, Project Curator
Ania Bas is a collaborative artist and developer of art projects. She often invites everyday people to take part in creative processes that lead to creation of art works. She uses different media: photography, Internet, performance and mobile phones. She enjoys blurring the edges of what art is and can be, and who produces it.
Currently Ania is an artist in residence at Vestas Blades UK Ltd on the Isle of Wight. This project is part of the Under Blues Skies scheme, which offers artists the opportunity to develop their practice in an industrial context.
As Project Curator, Ania is overseeing the artistic part of the project by commissioning and curating all artists and creatives as well as liaising with supporting galleries and art organisations
