Previously a full-time Primary School teacher in Henley-on-Thames, Julie joined the Artswork team in May 2017 as one of our four School Liaison Managers. As well as teaching, she was also responsible for Community Links, School Council, Safeguarding, Performing Arts, and Visual Literacy. Her previous roles have included Education Director at Film Education (now The Film Space), where she worked on developing film education in Primary and Secondary schools.
Julie is passionate about giving children and young people access to the arts. Alongside her role at Artswork, she is heavily involved with Henley Youth Festival, where she organises the Dance strand of the event each year. Dance is her love; she started ballet, tap and jazz at the age of 6 and is still going strong.
