staff news

There have been a few recent changes at Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre with the amalgamation of our legacy councils into the new Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council.

Our former Arts & Cultural Services Officer/Manager, Desima Connolly, is now Cultural Facilities Development Manager. Desima still has overall managerial responsibility for the centre but also our new sister venue, Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart and community arts in the borough. Now based at Flowerfield Arts Centre, you can still contact Desima via desima.connolly@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk or Tel: 028 7083 1400.

As part of on-going staff restructuring, we are delighted to welcome Shauna McNeilly on board as our new Community Arts Engagement Officer. Just started in July, Shauna will be developing activities programmes within both Roe Valley Arts Centre and Flowerfield Arts Centre to encourage community engagement, whilst also developing and delivering community arts outreach projects across the new borough.

From 2014 to 2016 she was European Engagement Officer based at the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, where she established and managed both the Creative Europe Culture and MEDIA Desks for Northern Ireland. Having completed her Theatre Studies degree at University of Ulster in 1997, Shauna began her arts career in Dublin with roles at The Gate Theatre, The Olympia Theatre and the Royal Irish Academy of Music.  She went on to work at Derry’s Nerve Centre, Foyle Film Festival, Glasgowbury Music Festival, Channel4TalentNI, Strule Arts Centre, Millennium Forum, and in freelance roles, delivering roles in marketing, funding, arts education, audience development, producing, event management and programming. She has extensive project management experience and has produced events with international artists as one of the Cultural Programmers for the inaugural UK City of Culture 2013. She is passionate about developing ideas into projects and skill-sharing through multi-partner working.

Although Shauna is based at Flowerfield Arts Centre, she will be working with our own internal team and groups in the limavady area to nurture community arts practice and cultural engagement. You can also contact Shauna via Shauna.McNeilly@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk or Tel: 028 7083 1400.
