Creative Director
Chelsea Art Museum
June 2009 – November 2009 (6 months)
Working closely with the Founder of the museum, the Managing Director, the Curatorial Department, Public Programming and the Marketing Department, I implemented a creative strategy to direct the museum’s future growth. Building on my experience as the Marketing and Communications Coordinator of the last 3 years, I continued to build relationships with other cultural institutions, sponsors, corporations and public service personnel, as well as donors and patrons of the museum. Transitioning the museum from a single ownership, non profit, to one handled by a board of directors, was one of the most challenging aspects of my new position. I initiated a complete rebranding of the museum, often offering guidance and suggestions to all sectors of the museum, including curatorial, new media and the performance arts segment of the public programming. Sourced creative means of income e.g. from individuals, partnerships, and events, to support the museum’s programming and day-to-day operations.
