Hello, I’m Katie Atkins and I’m the Community Engagement Lead.
I run the creative projects in communities across the city, working with residents and volunteers to co-create activity and events that offer art and culture to people on their doorsteps.
After graduating from University of Hull, I worked for 10 years as a teacher, was part of Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, and even volunteered during Hull’s City of Culture year. Working on the Nesta-funded social action projects for Absolutely Cultured and rescuing two gorgeous cats called Meg and Hugo, are two things I’m very proud of.
I love to travel – I have that wanderlust bug. My favourite recent destinations are Norway and Iceland. I love mountains and waterfalls.
