Fiona Doring was appointed Director of Impact Arts in October 2016, having previously been Acting Director and having worked with the organisation since 2004.
Holding an MA (Fine Art) from Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art and an MFA from Edinburgh College of Art, Fiona began her career as a practising artist, exhibiting her own work, and working in Arts Education before moving to Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen as Project Curator. Here she developed her commitment to art as a powerful tool for change through projects, residencies and exhibitions engaging contemporary artists with their communities.
Fiona is passionate about the parity of esteem between creativity and social change, and drives artistic design and delivery across Impact Arts whose mission is to help people and communities transform their lives through creativity and the arts. The organisation employs over 100 artists, makers and creatives each year to deliver approximately 90 projects engaging approximately 6000 people across Scotland with over 80% coming from the bottom 15% areas of social deprivation.
With specific interest in equalities and inclusion, Fiona brings experience from across different sectors including employability, health, education, housing and regeneration and specifically the role that the arts can play in each of these.
