EXCITING NEWS - SLWA HAVE RECRUITED 4 NEW EXTERNAL TRUSTEES

We would like to introduce the new Trustees that have volunteered to help advise SLWA on governance and support us as we move forward.  We would like to welcome them to SLWA, you will be able to meet them at the AGM. Here is a little about them below:

 

Rosie CampbellRosie Campbell is a South London local art enthusiast, with a Fine Art degree.  A working life spent in qualitative market research and business psychology (now semi-retired) means she brings valuable marketing and communication experience to her Trustee role at SLWA. Rosie has a MSc in Systemic Psychology and ILM Certified Business Coach. Chaired the AQR (2007-2010) 35+ years as co-proprietor of Campbell Keegan Ltd, a qualitative market and social research company; has specialised in many women’s markets and conducted over 150 research projects related to cultural and social policy strands. Rosie’s Clients include (commercial) WeightWatchers, L’Oreal, P&G, Unilever, M&S and (Government Departments) Sports Council, Arts Council, Cabinet Office, NHS, HEA, FSA, DWP. Fellow of the Market Research Society and RSA and one of the founders of Demos, the centre-left think tank. She is also a Samaritan Listening Volunteer and Marketing Support for LGS Samaritans.

 

Charlotte ChungCharlotte Chung works in policy, research and campaigns, with an expertise in social enterprise and small business. Having worked for the national body, Social Enterprise UK, for the best part of five years, she has a particular interest in social investment and sustainable business eco-systems. She is a firm advocate in businesses’ ability to be natural drivers in building better, more equal, societies; producing social value in tandem with profit. Charlotte moved on to join the global policy team for ACCA – the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants – as a Senior Policy Advisor, specialising in SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises).  At ACCA, she oversaw research initiatives covering a diverse range of topics from alternative finance to high-growth businesses. Most recently though, no longer content to watch from the side-lines, she took the plunge to get involved in the 2015 general election,  joining a Liberal Democrat’s campaign team. The best decision she has made in a long time…despite the outcome!

 

Martha LeeMartha Lee is the Exhibitions Programmer at Conway Hall. For the last four years she has organized and curated a variety of exhibitions, ranging from art by established artists to artists who are looking to hold their first London exhibition. Martha’s previous experience includes organising an annual art exhibition as part of Refugee Week entitled ‘Art in Exile’, a collaboration of refugee artists whose art interpreted their experiences of exile. Martha also comes from a family of artists and working on art exhibitions has been part of everyday life from a young age. She has been a keen follower of South London Women Artists for several years and had the opportunity to work more closely with us during our four month residency Finders Keepers at Conway Hall between Nov 2014 and Feb 2015. She believes SLWA are doing valuable work in promoting and enabling women in what has historically been a male domain and that women need that space in order to develop and grow as artists.  She is looking forward to becoming more involved with SLWA in her role as a Trustee.

 

Penny McLeanPenny McLean is Campaigns and Events Officer at the House of Commons, where she works to inspire and connect people with Parliament and democracy.
