Sue Kayindependent researcher

I have over thirty years’ experience in arts management and cultural administration – within performing arts organisations, funding bodies, development agencies and higher education.  I have worked as a producer, programmer, venue manager, planner, project coordinator, senior lecturer (Subject Director: Cultural Management, Dartington College of Arts, UK) and I now operate as a freelance consultant, educator and trainer.  My most recent substantive post (Executive Director, Culture South West, UK) enabled me to focus on regional cultural development, capacity building and high-level advocacy and facilitation.  I have a particular interest in cross-sectoral working, organisational development, and curriculum design and delivery in the cultural management field. I have an MA in Arts Management from City University in London and a PhD in Leadership Studies (focusing on the day to day activities of managers in small scale theatre organisations) from the University of Exeter. Formerly a board member of the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres and now resident in France, I work mainly in Central and Eastern Europe, the Southern Mediterranean region and Nordic-Baltic countries.
