Sarah Munro


Sarah Munro is Director of BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. Munro was Head of Arts for Glasgow Life from 2012-2015, and this role incorporated her role at the international arts centre Tramway, as well as responsibility for a portfolio that included: Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, Gallery of Modern Art’s temporary exhibitions programme and the Merchant City Festival. She also led a team of arts producers that worked across some of the most disadvantaged communities in Glasgow. Munro was also instrumental in the initiation and co-production of ‘Generation, 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland’.

Prior to this, as Artistic Director of Tramway from 2008 to 2012, Munro led the revitalisation of the centre’s public programming including visual arts and dance, which increased attendance at the venue by more than two thirds, and enhanced both their critical reputation and audience engagement. From 1996 until 2008, as Director at the Collective Gallery, Edinburgh, Munro transformed the organisation into an internationally recognised space with a unique position in Scotland.

Sarah Munro gained an MA (Hons) in Politics and Philosophy from University of Dundee and holds a PG Diploma from City University, London.
