DESCRIBE YOUR AVERAGE WORKING DAY
My average working day varies, depending on what’s happening in the upcoming programme. If a new exhibition is due to open, for example, I spend the majority of my time carrying out research, writing labels, selecting objects for display and liaising with a design company about the production of display panels. I also have a great volunteer, Julianne, who works alongside me a couple of days per week. When Julianne is here, we focus on packing objects, documentation and updating the museum database.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I like that my workload varies from day to day. One day I could be working at developing an exhibition, the next I could be responding to a historical enquiry from a member of the public. I enjoy finding out about the history of the borough and the people who live here and transmitting that information to the local community via exhibitions, talks and educational sessions.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE RVACC?
I like that we’re encouraged to put the local community at the heart of everything we do. I also think that we have a fantastic team working here which makes the Centre feel welcoming and makes it come to life.

GIVE IT UP: TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVOURITE CULTURAL ACTS/ARTISTS/ARTY THINGS YOU LIKE TO DO
From a young age, I’ve been passionate about museums and I continue to visit museums and historic houses on a regular basis. My favourite places to visit in Northern Ireland include Mount Stewart House in County Down and the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

You can find out more about the team on our About Us page.
