Kat joined BCB in 2018 as Community Programme Manager. She works on Clay Works, an arts and health programme that delivers creative projects with health organisations in Stoke-on-Trent.
Following her Masters in Community and International Development at the University of Oviedo, Kat worked in Mind’s Leadership and Engagement Team for 5 years. She is passionate about the benefits of the arts for our health and community cohesion.
Alongside her work for the British Ceramics Biennial, Kat is developing her practice as a ceramic artist and is currently a participant in the Craft Council’s Hothouse Programme.
During the 2019 Biennial, Kat will work with Natalie Armitage on The Clay Quarter – a changing space that uses lights, sound, camera and action to put clay centre stage.
“At the Clay Quarter, visitors will experiment with the sound, texture and look of liquid, wet and dry clay. Spending time playing with materials and processes, we hope to expand our experiences of clay.”
