Hi, I’m Janine Crombie and I’m the Head of Public Engagement.
I’m responsible for overseeing all audience engagement and the volunteer programme.
I did an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art back in the day, which is where my cultural interest comes from, keeping up the practice from time to time to this day. I’ve worked for over 20 years in Public Engagement roles such as Marketing, Individual Giving, Business Development and Innovation; coming up with new ways to generate income and engage audiences.
Some of the most important moments of my life include moving back to my home city of Hull in 2017 after over 20 years away and proudly seeing how much it has changed for the better. Becoming a parent (twice) and balancing being a full-time working mum. And now, working in the cultural sector where my experience and passion can come together, exploring what culture can do for Hull.
