Hello there, and thanks for visiting!
A bit about me- I’ve worked in a number of Government departments since finishing university, but decided to try something a bit different recently by setting up WeDidThis.org.uk, a new ‘crowdfunding’ site for the UK arts sector. We launched in January 2011 and raised funds- from lots of small donations- for lots of really exciting arts projects, ever since. We merged with PeopleFund.It in March 2012, and since then I’ve been fascinated by how products, services and philosophies can drive social change. I’m an RSA Fellow (and am standing to be part of the RSA Fellowship Council), a Courvoisier Future 500 member, and was part of the Big Society ‘Nexters’ programme too.
I also play drums in a band- have a look.
And here’s what this blog’s going to be all about…
