SCAN is pleased to announce the appointment of Clare Harris as Director.
SCAN is pleased to announce the appointment of Clare Harris as Director. Clare will take up the position in February 2019 and work with the team, board and sector to champion and support contemporary arts in Scotland.
Clare has a background in publishing and communications. She has edited a range of award-winning titles covering arts, culture and social affairs, and has worked with organisations across the UK, including The Big Issue and Scottish Refugee Council. Her work in the arts includes communications support for CCA, Trongate 103 and Glasgow International, as well as time spent co-ordinating Glasgow’s Youth Music Forum.
Sarah Munro, Chair of SCAN said: “We are excited to announce the appointment of Clare as our new Director. At a time of real challenge and change it is vital that we build on our manifesto commitments and support artistic practice and production in a wider societal framework. The knowledge and experience of our membership should more strongly inform necessary policy developments and help build the wider alliances that the sector needs to flourish. Claire comes with a wealth of experience in communications, building third sector partnerships and has a deep and developed understanding of the importance of art. We are delighted to welcome her to the SCAN network.”
Clare commented: “I’m excited to be joining SCAN at a time when the need for artists’ voices is stronger than ever. I am looking forward to building on the excellent work SCAN has been doing to create a strong voice for the sector.”
