Assistant Curator - Freya Blackwood

Freya Blackwood graduated from the University of Leeds with a First-Class Honours BA in History of Art. She has experience co-ordinating and curating public programmes to engage wide ranging, diverse audiences.


At Of Many Circles, Freya developed and managed the public programme for Summer of Ceramics, at Doddington Hall, which focused on those that have not historically engaged with heritage organisations in the area - hosting visiting community groups such as Lincoln Muslim Sisters Forum and Lincolnshire Polish Society. To facilitate this engagement, she organised a series of workshops led by Matthew Wilcock (BBC Pottery Throwdown winner, 2015).


At The HopBarn, a centre for contemporary culture in rural East Nottinghamshire, Freya supported the curators in the development an arts trail Living Landscape over the months of the winter lockdown (2020). Working with a team of eight artists, organising meetings to develop the exhibition and public programme, alongside aiding each with the development of their work. A key element of the public programme was the ‘Open Lunches’, a public event that curated a conversation between different facets of society around the themes of nature, food and sustainability. 

Freya is currently completing a Masters Degree in History of Art and Visual Culture at the University of Oxford.
