Kaavous Clayton and Julia Devonshire.
Kaavous is an artist-curator. He has worked as a gallery and project curator for public and cross-county projects in the eastern region. He has been involved in the development of community-focused initiatives that provide space for locals to share thinking, test ideas and exchange knowledge, leading to stronger and more vibrant communities that are more resilient, independent and better able to support themselves in the delivery of ambitious home-grown projects.
Julia is a cultural producer. She has worked in contemporary art, heritage and cultural development roles across East Anglia’s public sector, academic and artist-led settings. Her place-based practice supports grassroots, culture-led regeneration activity and enterprise, and seeks to broker innovative linkages between ideas, people and initiatives, whilst championing and supporting the development of local talent to help positive growth from within.
