Amanda Smethurst


Amanda is passionate about people and culture, and of course Hull.

Throughout her career as a community artist, the director of Artlink in Hull; and in a range of roles including director London at Arts Council England, within cultural and HE sectors, and local government; and now as a freelance facilitator and consultant, she has always championed ways for people to shape the culture and places around them.

As a Clore Fellow, she is passionate about supporting people as leaders, and through her coaching practice she enables individuals to understand what makes their heart sing.
