about me

Hi, I’m Louise…

I’ve worked at Manchester Art Gallery since 2006 and have loved every minute of being the Health and Wellbeing Manager there.

I’m proud that our health and wellbeing programme is internationally recognised and a example of good practice in the cultural sector. I’ve been invited to speak across Europe about museums and wellbeing.

I created the The Mindful Museum campaign which trained other UK museums and galleries on integrating mindfulness across their programmes.

After the birth of my daughter I decided to go part-time and now I’m really enjoying working with other museums and galleries. It’s so rewarding to use my years of experience in a niche field to support other organisations to deliver evidence-based and effective creative health work.

I love working with people and creativity in museums to improve mental health.

A few of my favourite things…
